Turkey's president has hit back on Twitter against his prime minister's ban on the service.
Sosyal medya platformlar?n?n tamamen kapat?lmas? tasvip edilemez.
In a series of tweets, Abdullah Gul said that complete closure of social media sites was "unacceptable".
He added that only individual web pages should be shut down, rather than the service as a whole, should a court rule that privacy has been breached.
"Hopefully this application will not last long," President Gul said.
Ki?ilerin özel hayat?n?n gizlili?ini ihlal gibi suç olu?turan hususlar varsa, ancak mahkeme karar?yla sadece ilgili sayfalar kapat?labilir.
