See the front page that sparked the Turkish government’s wrath.
Scroll through @PelinUnker’s feed and follow her for the reaction to today’s news. It’s a significant event for press freedom and Turkey, the world’s biggest jailer of journalists.

“While this is a relief after three years of ordeal, I hope this was not intended to be part of Turkey’s ongoing international PR campaign to rescue its image in the West,” @aylushka_a said of her court victory, alluding to the country’s status as the world’s top press jailer.
