How can I use Twitter when it is blocked in my nation?

There are some nations in the world where Twitter is blocked, for example in China. If you use Twitter to communicate with followers, fans and friends, this can cause trouble if you need to stay away from Twitter for days, weeks and months. So, how can you unblock Twitter and use it all over the world?

To walk around Twitter blocks in the nation you are in the best solution is a VPN service. These services encrypt your Internet connection and connect you to a server outside your nation, and once connected to this server you will find yourself surfing the Internet with an IP address elsewhere, and thus you will be able to bypass Twitter restrictions in the country you are currently in.

[stextbox id=”info”]If you need a VPN connection in China and you know about the problem before traveling, prepare yourself and make a subscription before arriving. Some of the websites of VPN providers are blocked in China, and therefore you will not always be able to make a new subscription.[/stextbox]
