Millions tell Erdoğan ‘enough’

Thousands of people vented their frustration with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s administration, saying ‘Taman’ (enough) to his 16-year rule of Turkey in a mass display of discontent.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said in a May 8 speech: “If one day our nation says tamam (enough), only then will we step aside.” In response, millions of people posted tweets featuring the word “tamam”.

There were more than 1.8 million posts including the word “tamam”, while different versions/spellings of the word were also popular. The hashtag #devam (“continue”) started by pro-Erdoğan groups immediately after lagged behind at 300,000 posts.
