Social media platform Twitter has developed a new app application called ”Ooniprobe” to help its users in Turkey not to suffer from frequent blockage.
The application developed by Tor Project members who work in Twitter according to Cumhuriyet. With this application, users will not need to install VPN to log in Twitter in Turkey.
When it was blocked on the night of July 15 during the coup attempt, Twitter made a statement on its own official account saying ““We have been blocked. We do not understand why this is done. These events are constantly being repeated. We will find a solution for this. ”
We have no reason to think we’ve been fully blocked in #Turkey, but we suspect there is an intentional slowing of our traffic in country.

When the new application will be ready for use in few months, Twitter users will be able to access the site even if the site is blocked in Turkey, without a VPN.
