HideMyAss helping Turkish Citizen to Beat Censorship via free VPN services
You may already know, the Prime Minister of Turkey banned Twitter, one of the best sources of online communication and news. Recep Tayyip Erdogan labeled twitter as “the worst menace to society”; he satisfied his intention to shut down Twitter.
For the justification of Erdogan’s actions, office said that Twitter did not follow the Turkish court order to eliminate specific links on their site. The statement said, “If Twitter officials insist on not implementing court orders and rules of law … there will be no other option but to prevent access to Twitter to help satisfy our citizens’ grievances”.
Therefore, in response to the ban, VPN service provider HideMyAss has offered its services in Turkey for the period of ban. Deal is only open while the ban is in place. After a user acceptance, they will get free service for six months.
