Today (3rd May 2011), we saw a rise of a strange hash tag on twitter and it literally went up like anything on twitter and crossed many hash tags of Justin Bieber. So, is it some celebrity, who is famous than Justin or is it another Rebecca Black? No it isn't any celebrity, it isn't any Rebecca or Justin. We don't report them, we report turkey internet law, censorship and internet freedom and it is something about internet freedom. #22agustos refers to the recent announcement of turkey internet law in yet another country which is half in Asia and half in Europe, Turkey has recently announced all its plans of Halal Internet in the country even before Iran, which is considered as the father of Halal Internet. From 22 August, 2011, Turkish netizens will have to choose 1 out of the 4 packages offered by the turkey internet law to surf the net. Packages are Family Pack, Children Pack, Standard Pack and Domestic Pack. According to these new turkey internet law, netizens their will be deprived to surf any website that is prohibited by the Turkish government in that respective plan. Initially, the websites which will be banned include Skype and its applications, Pornographic websites, blogs and websites against the government or Turkish culture and some newspapers with respect to the plan you select. This announcement comes after a recent ban of Turkish Internet Authorities on 138 search terms, which include many such terms which are normally used and has nothing do with any thing against the government. The ban include terms like Animal, Pic, Beat, Homemade, Hot, Free and various other terms which differ in meaning in Turkish and English. Turkish netizens are already planning to bypass this ban through Proxy and virtual private network (VPN), but obviously Proxy sites will also be banned. People planned to bypass it through DNS, but Turkish Govt. will block the IPs of the websites that it intends to block hence making it impossible for netizens to unblock it by changing DNS settings.
