Turkey Rumors

Thunder center Enes Kanter posted a series of messages on his Twitter account Sunday afternoon in the wake of a terrorist attack in Ankara, the capital city of his native Turkey. Dozens of people were killed and more than 100 were wounded Sunday evening when a car bomb exploded at a bus stop in a park near Ankara’s main square — the third deadly attack in the Turkish capital in the last six months. Some of Kanter’s Twitter messages included the hashtag #Ankara. Following the attack, reports surfaced of government-imposed restrictions of broadcast and publication coverage of the incident, including a country-wide censorship of Twitter and Facebook within Turkey, which caused an uproar among social media users.
