Turkish citizens were previously using VPN's and other public DNS servers to circumvent a block the country's government had placed on Twitter and YouTube.
The DNS workarounds quickly spread throughout the country's users with tweets coming from within Turkey being up 138%
compared to what they were before the block. Renesys had also confirmed the block
on twitter. To further enforce the ban on Twitter it has been confirmed that Turkey is now blocking the IP address of twitter at an ISP level along with blocking the popular Google Public DNS servers.
