How does a VPN proxy unblock Twitter?

A VPN, or virtual private network, unblocks Twitter by running your internet data through an encrypted tunnel and hiding your IP address and location through proxying.

When you connect to a VPN, you can circumvent government and school censorship, filters, masks, and firewalls. This allows you to access websites, apps, and online services with freedom.

Government and school firewalls block Twitter

Some governments, particularly in Asia and the Middle East, use firewalls and censorship laws to control the flow of information among their citizens, especially in times of social and political unrest. Your ISP might block Twitter entirely at the request of the local government. Some schools put up firewalls and content filters to prevent students from accessing valuable resources on Twitter. And in some countries, such as Germany and France, certain content is hidden by Twitter to comply with local laws.

But blocking Twitter is a direct assault on your freedom of expression. Reclaim your freedom to speak your mind with a VPN.
