Canada Global (Web News) Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter, tweeted on Wednesday that the Turkiyean government had notified the business that full access to the social media network would be restored “shortly” in the nation.
Earlier on Wednesday, the Netblocks internet observatory, which monitors connectivity throughout the world, reported that Twitter access had been censored two days after a significant earthquake that left hundreds dead in southern Turkey and northern Syria.
Without providing any other information regarding the timeframe, Musk tweeted, “Twitter has been advised by the Turkish authorities that access will be re-enabled shortly.”
A request for comment from Reuters was not immediately answered by Turkiye’s Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.
Since the earthquake, Turkish citizens have used Twitter to communicate with family members they are unable to reach, to report building collapses nearby, and to coordinate relief efforts.
According to the government and a rescue team operating in the rebel-controlled northwest, the confirmed death toll in Syria reached at least 2,950 and in Turkiye reached 9,057.
