Wikipedia has been unblocked in Turkey! // Türkiye'deki Wikipedia engeli kaldırıldı! 🇹🇷 . The best present we got for Wikipedia's birthday was being unblocked in Turkey. This action followed a recent ruling from the country's top court that the block was unconstitutional. We celebrate that the people of Turkey can once again participate in the largest global conversation about the culture and history of their country on Wikipedia. #WelcomeBackTurkey ! . Wikipedia'nın doğum gününde aldığımız en iyi hediye? Türkiye'de engelin kaldırılması! Geçtiğimiz günlerde ülkenin en üst mahkemesinin engeli anayasaya aykırı bulmasının ardından engel kaldırıldı. Türkiye'den kullanıcıların dünyadaki en büyük küresel diyalogda ülkelerinin kültürel ve tarihi hakkında yeniden katkıda bulunabilmesini kutluyoruz! #TekrarHoşGeldinTürkiye

The year is coming to a close, and we've tallied up @Wikipedia 's top articles for 2019. What's in the top ten? An unprecedented number of film and television references. @Marvel dominated the rankings, reflecting the culmination of over a decade of storytelling and the highest-grossing film of all time. There was only one article in the top ten not directly related to current film and television: that of @billieeilish , the first artist born in the 2000s to debut an album at the top of @billboardcharts ' #billboard200 . Find out who else made English Wikipedia’s most popular articles this year. #linkinbio #2019wrapup #2019 #wikipedia #billieeilish #avengers 📷: Billie Eilish. Photo by crommelincklars, CC BY 2.0.

It’s been a long time since Michael Scott dropped this knowledge bomb (S3E19, to be exact ). And the best part is, he’s still right. Volunteer contributors around the world fact check Wikipedia, so you know you’re *literally* getting the best possible information. // Credits! Music: "Seahorse" by Rondo Brothers

This past year, Wikimedia received 292 requests to modify or remove content from Wikipedia. None of those requests were granted. . The Wikimedia projects are yours, not ours. That’s why we believe users should decide what belongs on the Wikimedia projects whenever legally possible. . Our 2019 transparency report is live! Find out more on our blog. #linkinbio
History is often written by men. For men. And often includes only… men. We want to change this on Wikipedia. This is Edith Södergran, one of the most inﬂuential poets in Swedish history, gaining worldwide appreciation after her untimely demise. She’s widely considered a trailblazer in modern poetry, shaping Swedish modern poetry to what it is today. #theequaledit #wikimania19 #linkinbio
This is the Equal Edit - our project to make Swedish history more gender equal on Wikipedia. This week, we will be highlighting remarkable, but often forgotten women throughout Swedish history. Fredrika Bremer is among Sweden’s ﬁrst feminist writers and author of the novel Hertha. This novel helped spark a social movement granting Swedish women legal majority at the age of 25. #linkinbio #wikimania19 #theequaledit
The European Court of Human Rights has chosen to expedite our case to restore access to Wikipedia in Turkey, and defend free access to knowledge. Use the hashtag #ForFreeKnowledge to spread the word and tell us what free knowledge means to you. And please, share this post with your friends!
Wikipedia has been blocked in Turkey for over two years now. Today the Wikimedia Foundation reaches out to the European Court of Human Rights to help end nationwide censorship. #WithoutWikipedia , it's harder for people to understand what’s going on in the world around them. Harder to do homework. Harder to research. Free knowledge is a fundamental human right, and we intend to fight for it.
