Turkey Blocks Reddit Under Its Internet Censorship Law, Third After YouTube And Twitter


The government of Turkey has blocked Reddit in the country under the Turkey’s Internet censorship law 5651. Under the Internet censorship law, Turkey gets the powers to block those websites that have pirated / pornographic content or involved in criticizing the first president of the country Mustafa Ataturk.

The Telecom Authority of Turkey has made the news of censorship official and added that it became effective from Friday night.

The official statement from the authority reads:

After technical analysis and legal consideration based on the Law Nr. 5651, ADMINISTRATION MEASURE has been taken for this website (reddit.com) according to Decision Nr. 490.05.01.2015.-252804 dated 13/11/2015 of the Presidency of Telecommunication and Communication.”

YouTube and Twitter besides Reddit are other websites that have been blocked under the Turkey internet law 5651. Later, the sites were resumed in the country when a Turkey court intervened and ordered lifting of the censorship from YouTube and Twitter.
