Turkey blocks access to Twitter, Whatsapp - media

Access to social media sites Twitter, Whatsapp, Facebook and Instagram was blocked in Turkey on Friday, an internet monitoring group said, following the detentions of 11 pro-Kurdish lawmakers in the mainly Kurdish southeast overnight.

Access was being blocked by throttling, an expert from the monitoring group Turkey Blocks said, a method of slowing certain websites to the point where they are unusable, Reuters reports.
