Government curbs on websites happen all the time across the globe, but there's a simple workaround for most blocks. (Tweet this story.)
This month Turkish government became the latest to try to limit what its citizens can see online. Turkey temporarily blocked Twitter, Facebook and Youtube (owned by Google) after the sites posted images of a government prosecutor being held at gunpoint by militants. A Turkish court called the images "propaganda."
Turkey's not alone; the practice is common across the world, with countries such as China blocking off large chunks of the Internet as a matter of course.
"These government blocks happen all the time," said Charles Tendell, founder and CEO of Azorian Cyber Security. "Luckily, there are tools that people can download to get around them."
