Social media and YouTube blocked in Turkey - reports
Social media platforms across Turkey winked out after an airstrike in Syria killing dozens of Turkish soldiers. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and YouTube were all reported down.
Twitter was the first to go, with national provider Turk Telekom shutting off access around 11:30pm local time on Thursday. This was followed by all other social networks, clustered by provider, according to multiple services monitoring internet outages across the globe, RT reported.
Accounts of major media outlets remained active however, as they flashed updates about the alleged Syrian airstrike and the Turkish response.
