Türkiye imposes ad ban on Twitter for failing to appoint local representatives

Country's social media law requires platforms to appoint local representatives

By Gokhan Ergocun

ISTANBUL (AA) - Türkiye has imposed advertising bans on Twitter after the social media giant failed to appoint local representatives in Türkiye, the Information and Communication Technologies Authority said in an announcement published in the Official Gazette on Friday.

Türkiye, in 2021, began to implement a new social media law, under which social media platforms that are accessed over a million times per day are required to appoint local representatives. If failed to do so, they would be liable for various penalties, including monetary fines, advertising ban and bandwidth reduction.

If Twitter does not appoint local representatives, the authority may limit its bandwidth by up to 90%.
