YouTube has been blocked in Turkey for two months – one of several international websites to fall victim to a crackdown by the country’s government on free speech. Now, though, access to Google’s video site has been restored, after Turkey’s Constitutional Court ruled that the ban should be lifted. “We are glad that YouTube has been restored in Turkey following our successful appeal to the courts, and that people and businesses can once again access and share information on YouTube,” YouTube’s spokesperson tells Mashable. Twitter has also been blocked in Turkey in recent months – and similarly unblocked after a court ruling. The restoration of YouTube access is good news for music channels like Mu-Yap, the Turkish channel that has become one of the most popular YouTube destinations.
