Torproject.org.

It works for at least one person I know in Pakistan, where it's also blocked. It's kinda slow, though, but it does work.

The best suggestion I have to offer is to avoid Facebook and Twitter and do something productive with your life instead.

/like posting on Fark

I used to use HidemyASS but I find StrongVPN outperforms it exponentially.

why try. without facebook and twitter you wont know how farked up youre country is.
 
2011-01-27 01:58:14 PM
just an idea, you could get some cheap hosting through a site like dreamhost which has a wordpress installer, and install a twitter plugin on wordpress which would repost your wordpress entries to your twitter account. might take a few hours to set up.

They're not blocked, it's a side effect of a de-nile-of-service attack

Well, they're trying to keep/regain access because that's how the Tunisians (SP?) communicated for their non-violent overthrow.

I recommend going outside and being Angry. Perhaps pick up a nice rock or two, maybe find a fossil.

It worked for a co-worker/friend of mine too. He's not allowed to return their since he dodged their mandatory conscription laws.

Well, he could return but they would put him in prison. Not much of a choice since he's doing fine here in the US.

theflatline: StrongVPN


Do they have any limit to the amount of data used? My only reason for using HMA instead of something else was that most other companies had a certain cap (usually a couple gig).

We know he was able to access twitter, only it was slightly less advanced than twitter is today. Below you can see a picture of some of his tweets.

Horrific twinkling hieroglyphs. Zither music midi files blaring. Heavy girls with too much eyeliner only showing granite carvings from the bosom upwards.

facebook was used to help organize and disseminate crowd locations for the tunisia riots. This may in fact be the very first time in history facebook has in fact been used productively.

Try using MySpace. It's so under the radar now that it's the perfect place to organize a revolution.

Good luck!

Moses left Egypt and wandered aimlessly in the desert for 40 years without purpose. Which is quite similar to using Facebook and Twitter.

Of course he was. Why do you think it took him forty f*cking years to get to the Jordan.
