Turkey imposes a ban on advertising Twitter, Periscope, Pinterest

The Turkish Information and Communication Technologies Authority has imposed advertising bans Twitter, Periscope and Pinterest under a new social media law, according to decisions published in the country’s Official Gazette on Tuesday.

The law, which critics say will open mouth to dissent, requires social media companies to appoint local representatives in Turkey. On Monday, Facebook Inc joined with other companies saying it would appoint such a representative.
