After blocking access to Twitter on March 21 and increasing the severity of that ban a few days later, Turkey has finally lifted the suspension of Twitter across the country after the nation’s Constitutional Court ruled that the move, which was widely condemned, had breached freedom of expression.
The Turkish government banned Twitter throughout the country last week and has increased the severity of the ban in recent days. Now, Twitter is challenging the block by filing petitions for lawsuits in Turkish courts to formally ask for the ban to be lifted.
Yep. Twitter is suing Turkey. In Turkey.
The 39th Ryder Cup gets underway tomorrow (Friday) at the Medinah Country Club, Illinois, and like almost every major event that takes place in the world today, social media is expected to play its part.
To a point. While European captain José María Olazábal has given permission for his team to use Twitter to provide updates and engage with fans during the competition, he has issued a warning.
A new survey of 2,500 British employers has revealed the impact the social media channels have made on businesses in the UK, although possibly not in the productive way you might think.

"Dear Chinese Government…" (Twitter CEO Reacts After Chinese Activist Is Sent To Labour Camp For Tweet)
Twitter CEO Dick Costolo (@dickc) responds to the disturbing news that the Chinese government sentenced ‘activist’ Cheng Jianping to one year of ‘Re-education Through Labour’ on Monday for “disturbing social order”, after she retweeted a satirical suggestion (from her boyfriend) on October 17 that the Japanese Pavilion at the Shanghai Expo be attacked.
Will it do any good? Probably not. Twitter is banned in China, after all, and everybody knows that governments in communism countries with atrocious human rights records always follow the exact same rules they impose on the people – so they won’t even see it! – but it’s encouraging to witness somebody in Costolo’s position being proactive.
Although if he suddenly disappears, we’ll have a good idea of what might have happened.
