    What?

    A Twitter account to be curated every week by people from different walks of life living in Turkey. It helps share information about anything and everything but somehow related to Turkey. It is, to get the best result from the project, in English.

    Why?

    Considering the era of mass communication and increasing globalization, a country depends largely on how it is perceived abroad. Stereotypical thoughts are common, misconceptions are an every-day routine. Regarding the need to give a better perspective to people abroad @curatingturkey has been created so as to show which stereotypes are factual and which are nothing but urban legends. This way, we'll spread the word about beautiful Turkey with it's pros and cons.

    Who?

    Güney Köse, the creator of @curatingturkey, got greatly inspired by the amazing @sweden project. It was inevitable, then, to start it in Turkey, which he thinks is a country of curiosity, enigma and surprises. So, a different person living in Turkey will take over the account every week to show you different aspects of it. Unlike @sweden, @curatingturkey will allow people living in Turkey but with a different nationality to be in charge of the account.

    Where?

    Turkey! Turkey! Anywhere in Turkey!

    When?

    Now! Now! Right now on Twitter!

    How?

    Through nominating or personally applying, the curator of next week is chosen. Anyone could be elected as the next curator of the account as long as she/he meets a few requirements. Apply here! Basically, she/he will post things which will be seen on @curatingturkey timeline.
