  2. Totally a sign of a non dictatorial regime.

  3. >Turkey restricted access to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and WhatsApp in at least three cities in the southern part of the country for about 48 hours earlier this week as it launched an attack on northern Syria,

    That still doesn’t prevent individuals from recording images and storing them on their devices until the restrictions are lifted, at which time they can take them viral.

  4. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.wired.com/story/turkish-isp-blocks-social-media-syrian-border/) reduced by 79%. (I’m a bot)

    > Turks close to the border rely on those social media services to access and share uncensored news.

    > Turkish authorities have routinely blocked access to social media in parts of the country in recent years, usually in the wake of terrorist attacks, politically damaging leaks, or citizen protests, Shahbaz says.

    > The Turkish government's increasing hostility toward the press has led many journalists in and outside of the country to publish directly to social media in an attempt to evade government censorship, he says.
