Social media access restricted in Turkey: internet monitoring groups

Access was restricted in Turkey on Friday to Facebook Inc , Twitter Inc and Alphabet Inc’s YouTube shortly after news that a military coup was under way, according to two internet monitoring groups. Turkey Blocks, a group that monitors internet shutdowns in the country, and Dyn, which monitors internet performance and traffic globally, both reported it was difficult or impossible to access social media services in Turkey. Turkey’s military said on Friday it had seized power, but the prime minister said the attempted coup would be put down.
