The ban on Twitter in Turkey has been lifted and citizens can now access the social network.
This is hours after President Tayyip Erdogan ordered a social media ban.
The move follows Twitter’s compliance with Turkey’s request to remove images of prosecutor Mehmet Selim Kiraz, who died last week in a shootout between police and militants from the far-left Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front (DHKP-C).
Kiraz, who investigated the death of a teen during anti-government protests two years ago, was taken hostage last week by DHKP-C members.
Photos depicting the Turkish prosecutor held at gunpoint hours before his death had surfaced on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.

Both Twitter and Facebook have already complied, while talks between Turkish authorities and YouTube are ongoing.
