During coup attempt, Turkish president appears via Facetime on live TV — In what may be another first for our connected world, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan placed what appeared to be a Facetime call to a national news broadcast early on Saturday while the world tried to figure out if a military coup against him had succeeded. As Macworld points out, “Erdogan’s use of modern technology to speak to the nation comes with a heap of irony.

Reporters Without Borders says Erdogan has “systematically” censored the Internet.”
