How to Use a VPN to Unblock Twitter
Unblock Twitter With a VPN
Unblock your favorite apps and services with a Twitter VPN. You don’t need to be tech-savvy to set it up. Here’s how:
- Sign up for an ExpressVPN subscription.
- Download and install your VPN apps on your computer and/or mobile device.
- Connect to one of ExpressVPN’s 136 VPN server locations worldwide.
- Once you’re connected to a VPN server, Twitter will start working as it should.
Setting up a VPN is easy. Anyone can do it!
How Does a VPN Unblock Twitter?
A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, puts your data in an encrypted tunnel, letting you circumvent government censorship, filters, masks, and firewalls—so you can access websites, apps, and online services with freedom.
If Twitter is blocked where you are, then connecting to a VPN server will unblock Twitter so you can reconnect with your friends, followers, and news you care about.
VPN vs Proxy: What’s the Best Way to Unblock Twitter?
Maybe you’ve heard about unblocking Twitter with a proxy. Both a proxy service and a VPN can help you access censored content from anywhere in the world. But a VPN is much more secure than a proxy when it comes to protecting your data.
The key to VPN technology is the secure tunnel it forms between you and the Internet. The VPN tunnel is protected with high-strength 256-bit encryption, so you can go online from Wi-Fi hotspots without being tracked or monitored by the government, corporations, hackers, or ISPs.
When snoopers try to spy on what you’re doing, all they can see is encrypted traffic passing between you and the VPN servers. They can’t see what apps or websites you’re using, and they can’t see what you’re saying, so you can maintain your privacy when you go online.
A VPN helps you defeat surveillance and secure your Internet connection while giving you unlimited access to the Internet. This is the way the Internet should be.
Why Is Twitter Blocked In Some Places?
Because Twitter is such a powerful tool, some governments, Internet service providers, and organizations block it to prevent citizens from communicating with each other.
Governments 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 to comply with the government’s wishes. And schools put up firewalls and content filters to prevent students from accessing valuable resources on Twitter.
ExpressVPN doesn’t think this is right. Everyone has the right to freedom of expression.
The Internet brings together individuals from all over the world so they can discuss ideas and share information instantly and inexpensively. Social networking platforms like Twitter help foster global communities of human beings striving to create a better world.
But censorship, Internet filters, firewalls, and other methods of content-blocking prevent us from coming together online and on Twitter. All of these are a direct assault on freedom to expression. This is not the way the Internet should be.
This is why many people around the world are choosing to defeat Twitter censorship with a VPN. To securely share news, ideas, information, and funny pictures and videos with each other. To connect with our communities. And to protect our freedom of expression.
We Depend On Twitter to Stay Connected
Twitter is a powerful platform connecting people all over the world.
We rely on it to get breaking news and keep up with current events.
We use it to share information about our hobbies, interests, beliefs, and causes.
We need Twitter to share links with our friends and followers, discover interesting articles, and keep a finger on the pulse of what’s trending.
We count on Twitter to promote our brands and businesses, connect with our customers, and stay on top of industry news.
We love Twitter because it brings together communities.
Don’t let anyone stop you from tweeting. Stay connected with a Twitter VPN.
