In its effort to curtail access to Twitter, Turkey is getting more aggressive with a block of the service?s IP address, according to sources inside Turkey as well as a DNS provider. That means that changing their DNS server, whether it be Google DNS or OpenDNS, will no longer work for residents in the country.

Previously, Twitter users in Turkey had turned to Google DNS and other services as a way to circumvent the country?s ban of Twitter as a communication service. The government later thwarted those efforts with a block of the DNS service as well, while other services, like OpenDNS, remained available.

But the latest move by the government will make it more difficult, but not quite impossible, for residents to access Twitter. By blocking Twitter at the IP level, DNS services will no longer work. Instead, citizens are being urged to access the service via VPN or by using the Tor anonymity network.

Man, I know this is slightly off topic, but hasn't anyone in government figured out, the more you try to block something, the more different avenues appear to circumvent it?

(As you've mentioned in your op) :)

Hillary Clinton ? @HillaryClinton
The freedom to speak out & to connect is a fundamental right. The people of Turkey deserve that right restored. #TwitterisblockedinTurkey 3:49 PM - 22 Mar 2014 Source

 

Hilary, do not worry much about Turkey and other countries look into US, if you can. Turkish people know how you have vehemently supported this corrupt radical Islamist Turkish PM for years to topple down the secular Republic in collaboration with traitors in Turkey. We are, Turks, not asking for your support, stay away from us cougar . We will not forget and forgive how you were toward us. Take care and look after your Casanova, Bill :) Ohh. Keep going feeding up the Islamist cleric in Pennsylvania.
