News ban on MİT trucks allegations may result in social media bans

Turkish authorities have warned that all websites publishing alleged records related to Syrian-bound trucks belonging to the Turkish intelligence agency (MİT) that were stopped by a prosecutor last year will be banned, presaging a possible new ban on Twitter and Facebook. Twitter complied with Turkey’s demand of blocking access to the related account which seemingly prevented the feared ban for now.
