Turkish president says on Twitter social media bans unacceptable

ISTANBUL, March 21 (Reuters) - Turkish President Abdullah Gul said on Friday that it was unacceptable to impose complete bans on social media platforms after a court decision to block access to Twitter.

Writing on Twitter, Gul said only individual Internet pages should be blocked if a court ruled that an individual’s privacy had been violated, adding he hoped the current block would not last long. (Reporting by Seda Sezer; Writing by Daren Butler; Editing by Alison Williams)
