    hi, our government has blocked twitter.com 2 days ago. We were able to enter twitter via DNS but today they blocked DNS too. All of the DNSs don't work now. They are all blocked. we can just login via website using vpn like hotspot or zenmate on chrome. As we don't have VPN application on our store, we are just using Nokia Xpress (it uses some proxy as I understand) Why doesn't they do an app for WP8? Or can't they do because of OS?

    That's bad news. The good news is, It supposed to be coming to you in 8.1 that is if Turkey doesn't block the update.

    Maybe this will work, have seen images of a Windows Phone on their site but never tried it. https://proxy.sh/panel/aff.php?aff=323

    edit: They are using some basic VPN technologies such as PPTP and L2TP, and they are compatible with windows phone :)

    You can use nokia's xpress browser, at least I'm doing it that way to bypass AKP's stupid banning policy.

    What were the people of Turkey doing with Twitter that the government felt they had to block it?

    People were spreading info and bad (but possibly true) pr about the current prime minister - who is coming up for elections soon. That sucks.

    And yeah, hopefully wp8.1 will bring openvpn support, or something, so it becomes harder to block social media arbitrarily. Especially when the rest is state influenced.

    Pgp support would be good too - encrypt your messages and all that!

    Good luck to all those suffering under such draconian regimes - whether they have the deceitful cloak of democracy or no

    It is that kind of decision that leads to Turkey being excluded from the European Union.

    Shame because, from my experience, they're a lovely welcoming lot.

    At least 50% of Turkey is not happy with this regime. But ,unfortunately, still the other uneducated half can't see what Erdogan did by stealing money and our freedoms from us.

    It's a shame that region if the world is so blinkered. But hey, they're obvious with their corruption. We just dress it up.

    What a life we lead.
