turkish finance ministerTwitter has so far made no public comment on the ban, but the company on Friday posted a message in both English and Turkish telling users how to send tweets via text messages.

There are estimated to be about 10 million Twitter users in Turkey, There are about 10 million Twitter users across Turkey, Mr Simsek, who accepted that banning social-media sites “doesn’t reflect well” on his government, insisted that the ban was not a crackdown on free speech.

“The Turkish telecommunications watchdog has made a number of statements saying that they have asked Twitter on a number of occasions to remove some content on the back of court orders and Twitter has been refusing to comply,” he said.

“I don’t think any global company, whether it’s a media company, whether it’s an industrial company, it shouldn’t see itself [as being] above the law.”

The minister said it now looked as if Twitter was working with the Turkish authorities to get the ban lifted, A senior Turkish government official told Reuters that talks with Twitter on ending the ban “were going positively”.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan was said to have been angry that people have used the website to spread allegations of corruption about members of his inner circle.
