VPN downloads soar in Turkey as government blocks Twitter

The use of VPN services has skyrocketed in Turkey as authorities restricted access to Twitter on Wednesday. This comes just two days after a devastating earthquake that killed more than 15,000 people in Turkey and Syria.

One of the best Turkish VPNs on the market, Proton VPN has seen a significant increase in usage from the country. Peak hourly records rose 30,000% above normal levels, eclipsing those from the rest of the world.
