Twitter User Sent To Jail For “Allah” In Twitter Handle

A Twitter user by the handle @CenabiAllah was sent to 15 months in jail for using “Allah” in his handle.

He was sentenced for “humiliating the religious values accepted by a part of the people,” according to Turkish news website Hurriyet Daily News.

Prosecutors in Muş province went after the user — whom Hurriyet says is a teacher named “Ertan P.” — for using the name of God in his Twitter handle and for tweeting messages against the government.
