First of all: congratulations to Twitter which is 8 years old today. Can you belive that? I hope it will be a great day for Twitter on the stock exchange today. That will be a great gift, because yesterday was a bad day for Twitter. Down -2,19%.
Twitter is not alone: Facebook went down -1,86% and Apple went down -0,48%. What is that suppose to mean? It is a sale signal for Facebook. Is this the time for investors to get out of Facebook and other tech stocks? Time will show.
Twitter is an online social networking and microblogging service company that enables users to send and read «tweets». According to Yahoo.com, the microblogger went dark in Turkey just hours after Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened to «wipe out» Twitter which (along with others) was highlighting corruptions against his inner circle.
The EU commissioner for digital agenda, Neelie Kroes, tweeted that the block «is groundless, pointless, cowardly». Erdogan`s office said in a statement that Twitter had remained «indifferent» to Turkish court rulings demanding «some links» be removed.
Erdogan will wipe out Twitter and say he don`t care about the international community. Turkey`s leader since 2003 is under pressure since audio recording spread across social media that appeared to put him at the heart of a major corruption scandal.
Some of the most damaging information has come from a Twitter account under the name Haramzadeler («Sons of Thieves») which have access to a huge trove of secrets documents and policy wiretaps linked to the investigation. Erdogan say the recordings are fake and threatened to ban YouTube and Facebook after crucial elections on March 30.
Erdogan say this social media companies like Twitter «menace» for helping organise mass anti-government protests.
