Turkey and Twitter talk

Text size Aa Aa

Turkey and executives of the social networking site Twitter have held face to face discussions following a break down in relations.

It comes in the wake of a ban on the site brought in by the government as it was fighting a corruption scandal. Twitter has also been accused of tax evasion.

The government estimates that Twitter generates $35 million a year in advertising revenue in Turkey, none of it taxed by Ankara.

Two rounds of talks are scheduled. Twitter chiefs said the first round was positive.
