As Twitchy reported, Twitter has been blocked in most of Turkey just a few days before a crucial election. Current Prime Minister Tayyip Erdoğan has said he will “eliminate” Twitter and other social media sites to protect Turkish citizens and preserve their privacy. The Turkish have found workarounds, though, such as simply changing their DNS settings.

This graffiti spreads the word on how to bypass the block and reconnect to Twitter.

Thanks to workarounds like phone texting and virtual private networks, the Los Angeles Times reports that “rather than chilling use, Twitter reported traffic in Turkey Thursday set a record.”
