Hello, good evening. I am in China and have a problem with my Samsung S8. It can’t access the Twitter website. I tried many times but just failed with a return message like this as below.
This webpage is not available
Internet could not load the webpage because www.twitter.com took too long to respond. The website may be down, or you may be experiencing issues with your internet connection.
I check my internet connection. It is good to access any local websites but fail to visit websites like google, facebook. What is going on? It is weird. Can you guys please help me? Thanks a lot!
China is a nation with very unique culture. You many have known about the mysterious Chinese Acupuncture & Moxibustion; you may have seen some films which show the amazing Chinese kungfu. These may best show some aspects of Chinese traditional culture. While today’s China is one of the most important modern countries with a completely different appearance. In the history, the nation was among the world’s most important civilizations together with Egypt, Mesopotamia, Indus Valley, etc. And after about 30 years of opening up and reform after the founding of new China by Chair Mao, the country has experienced significant changes. It is classified as one of the most energetic economy in the world and plays a very important part in many international issues on the global stage. Millions of travelers from other different countries going to the nation for various purposes can be viewed as one of the most important achievements China has made during the adoption of the opening up and reform policy. As the policy is implemented further, it is believed that many more visitors will be attracted to the country either for tourism or business. But it is a disappointing fact that visitors may not be allowed to visit some of the most popular websites during their stay in China. These websites or online services include Twitter, New York Times, Time, Reuters, The Washington Post, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Telegram, Vimeo, Flickr, Gmail, Google Search, Dropbox, Line, Blogger, Github, Hulu, HBO, USA Network, ABC, BBC iPlayer, Spotify, Deezer, WWE, Star Sports, Sky Italia and other more than 3,000 websites or services of different countries. All the websites or services are all blocked by the Chinese government with the watertight Great Firewall of China. That is why when visitors from abroad or Chinese citizens try to visit Twitter on their Samsung smart phones or other devices, the web browser will return the error message “The website is not available…” or other similar messages like those on Firefox web browser on windows operating system.
Server not found
Firefox can’t find the server at twitter.com.
Check the address for typing errors such as ww.example.com instead of www.example.com
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
Luckily, users can bypass the GFW and visit whatever they want including Twitter on any devices by using a VPN. It is a fact that VPN technique has helped tens of thousands of users in China with the problem of being blocked from the banned content. So, how to visit Twitter in China on Samsung S8?
If you are looking for a technique that can not only help you access any unavaible or blocked websites in China, but also a method to help you stay protected from being attacking by many possible threats or disturbed by online marketers, a quailty VPN service can be your best consideration. A VPN is the abbreviation of Virtual Private Network. It can work as a middleman between your device and the other services. Your original IP will be covered by a new one with the VPN service online. In this way, the websites will fail to decide where you are from and thus you will be allowed to access all the content on them. And at the same time, the GFW will fail to tell which service you are heading for,and thus you will succeed in managing to access the blocked websites. What is more, your privacy will be well protected while using a VPN to go online.
The detail guide to use a VPN consists of three steps.
Step 1: First, it is needed to go to sign up for an account from a VPN service provider. Usually there are various service plan available, pick up the one that you think it best for you. After that, you will be provided the options to make the payment. Choose the payment method and fill in all the information to complete. An email will be sent to you to confirm the account upon payment being completed. After confirming, the next step is to download and install the software onto your system.
Step 2: Download and install the VPN software. Usually, a link to download the software will be provided in the confirmation email. You may be presented with a list of software where software for different operating systems or devices are listed. Select the one for your systems to finish downloading. The installation is easy, just click through the procedures as prompted all the way to complete.
Step 3: Connect to a US-based server or other appropriate server location on VPN. When the software is ready, the left you need to do is to start the application and fill in your account detail and choose a proper location. You can select any server located in US. If you like, you can also choose other locations like Canada. It is all up to you. Now everything is done.
