Twitter launches video app

Turkish prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan has placed a ban on Twitter use as a social media tool. Reports say this is in an attempt to halt widespread corruption allegations against him by restricting the amount of tweets posted.

The announcement was made by Erdogan following a court order that Twitter was disabled in the country. “We’ll eradicate Twitter,” he said. “I don’t care what the international community says. Everyone will witness the power of the Turkish Republic.”

The move came after the posting and widespread sharing of voice recordings and documents on Twitter that appear to provide evidence of widespread corruption.

In one, Erdogan is heard warning his son to remove a quantity of suspect cash from his and other houses, following the news that the police were raiding premises as part of a wide-ranging corruption investigation.
