A Free Internet? Twitter Blocked in Tunisia and Egypt

The latest news from Tunisia and Egypt is reminiscent of the government crackdowns on social networking sites from Iran during 2009.  According to an article published this week, Egypt appears to have blocked access to Twitter in response to citizens using social networking sites to organize protests against the government.  The Internet, for many in this world, is not free.

A personal VPN service, such as Golden Frog’s VyprVPN service, is a tool that can help people bypass such restrictions.  By encrypting communications between the VyprVPN network and the end-user, unwanted third-parties are prevented from determining which websites the end-user is visiting or communicating with.  Since 1994 Golden Frog has been dedicated to restoring individual’s rights to online privacy. Golden Frog allows its VyprVPN customers to use the Internet freely, securely, from anywhere in the world, including Egypt.
