Turkey President Uses FaceTime To Address The Country

The Verge, Nick Statt

Amid the ongoing military coup in Turkey, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan used Apple’s FaceTime to phone into a Turkish television network this evening from a secure location. According to New York Times reporter Ceylan Yeginsu, who posted a limited transcript of the conversation on Twitter, Erdogan told citizens of Turkey to “convene at public squares and airports.” Starting Friday, factions of the Turkish military began taking control of public infrastructure, shutting down bridges in Istanbul and forcibly grounding all flights out of the Atatürk airport.
