Ahval: Turkish government releases WhatsApp clone

Ahval: Turkish government releases WhatsApp clone. “Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdağ announced to members of the press that Turkey had developed a ‘100 percent local and national’ version of mobile messaging software WhatsApp, pro-government newspaper Habertürk reported . PTTMessenger, developed by the Turkish post office, was ‘a more secure system than WhatsApp,’ Bozdağ said.” I suspect we’ll be seeing a lot more of this, and it goes beyond places like China. (Uganda, anyone?)
