(04/06/13) Techdirt - Turkish Prime Minister Blames Twitter For Mass Social Unrest, Because It Sure Beats Blaming HimselfSubmitted by gomez on Tue, 06/04/2013 - 12:40
"You may have heard a thing or two about the protests going on in Turkey. If you haven't, you really ought to read the news a bit more, because it's a pretty big deal. What started as a small protest swelled into a very big one, with much of the anger being directed at Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Erdogan's response? Blame Twitter.
"There is now a menace which is called Twitter," Erdogan said. "The best examples of lies can be found there. To me, social media is the worst menace to society."
