See why ExpressVPN is the best VPN for Mac

Just perfect!!! Simple and extremely useful. Thanks, guys!
Works so good, you can’t tell that you’re VPNing. Normally they slow you down. I did speed tests and it’s the same speed. So it looks like I am in Germany. LOL
PRO TIP: Install ExpressVPN before boarding the plane on iPhone or Mac and bypass filtering and throttling!
Luckily @expressvpn supports Mac OS 10.10 Yosemite, so great to come back to Twitter!
