  1. Using VPN :

A virtual private network (VPN) began to dominate discussions on social media platforms shortly after the federal government declared that Twitter had been suspended.

But what is a virtual private network (VPN)? When using public networks, it is a connection that allows users to establish a secure network connection.

It is critical in assisting users in protecting their internet traffic and maintaining their online identities.

When you connect to a secure VPN server, for example, your internet traffic is sent through an encrypted tunnel that no one, including hackers, governments, or your internet service provider, can see.

Steps On How To Use VPN To Bypass Twitter Suspension In Nigeria

According to the most basic definition of a VPN, it helps you disguise your internet protocol (IP) address, which is a unique number that identifies you and your geographic location.

One of the advantages of using a VPN service is that it allows you to alter your IP address. This means that if you get a new IP address — which can be from any nation — you can use Twitter as if you’re in that nation without any restrictions.

To accomplish this, simply change the VPN’s location to any nation of your choice and connect to that country’s VPN.

Furthermore, despite the government’s suspension, you can still use a Nigerian IP to access Twitter because a VPN covers your IP address.

How to get a VPN?

It is not difficult to obtain a VPN. There are both commercial and free VPNs that can ensure you uninterrupted access to Twitter in Nigeria, despite the government’s ban.

According to Comparitech, ExpressVPN, NordVPN, and Surfshark, CyberGhost, IPVanish, VyprVPN, and ZenMate are among the best-paid VPNs for Twitter.

ProtonVPN, Hotspot Shield Free VPN, Windscribe Free VPN, TunnelBear, Speedify, and Hide.me are some of the free VPNs that can be used on Twitter.

Here are the basic steps to get a VPN on your device, whether it’s paid or free:

  • Go to the App Store or Play Store.
  • In the search box, type VPN.
  • Select a VPN of your choice and install it.
  • Install the app by opening it.
  • Change your location to any other country you like (for example, India, the United Kingdom, Thailand…)
  • Then, on your VPN, select Connect.

    With the above tips, you can log in to twitter despite Nigeria’s suspension. You can comment below if you are lost or if it helps.
