Turkey could block other social media if security threatened - sources
ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey could block access to other social media platforms as well as YouTube (GOOG.O) and Twitter (TWTR.N) if users publish recordings or documents which threaten national security, government sources said on Thursday.
Turkish telecoms regulators moved to block YouTube on Thursday after an anonymous account posted what it presented as a leaked recording of a discussion between the country's intelligence chief, deputy head of the armed forces and foreign minister about possible military operations in Syria.
