The United States on Friday slammed an attempt by Turkey to ban the online social network Twitter, which government opponents have used to publish corruption allegations.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the order to prevent Turks from accessing the US firm's micro-blogging site was "contrary to Turkey's desire to be a model of democracy."
