Twitter gives a big FU to Turkey’s Prime Minister

In case you hadn’t heard, the Prime Minister of Turkey has blocked Twitter in the country just days before their countries election.  Just another Dictator trying to block the voice of his people.  So what does Twitter do?  Hire some high priced lawyer to face their Government in international court? No, expensive, time consuming and probably wouldn’t go any where anyways.  Instead with just a few keystrokes, less than 140 characters, Twitter puts out a tweet on how to get around the Governments ban rendering it totally useless.
