No sharing videos for Turkey users today

According to reports which are being confirmed with the Twitter stream, popular video streaming site Vimeo is being blocked in Turkey. We aren’t sure why they’re being banned yet but it may be from a “copyright infringement or a offending video” its also reported that if Vimeo contacts the Turkish goverment and removes whatever is offending them then the site could be unblocked within 1-10 days. You are probably wondering why we are writing about this. Vimeo, being the moderately large site it is is common to share videos on Twitter and is even automated. Those videos or sharing feature itself will no longer work for Twitter users. A handful of Shoutitout users in turkey also report videos that have been embedded on Shoutitout from Vimeo and already blocked Youtube have stopped showing and are just showing a gray box. We will update you if and when we get more information.
