For people who need a quick fix: You have three options – Web proxies, thor and hotspot shield. You can find below instructions and links for all three.

So today Egypt, protested. Then, Egypt rioted. Because Egypt needed to vent.  There were reports that twitter was blocked, that were later confirmed by http://blog.twitter.com ‘s twitter account @twitterglobalpr in a couple of posts:

@twitterglobalprTwitter Comms
We can confirm that Twitter was blocked in Egypt around 8am PT today. It is impacting both Twitter.com & applications. (1/2)
@twitterglobalprTwitter Comms
Re Egypt block: We believe that the open exchange of info & views benefits societies & helps govts better connect w/ their people. (2/2)

So next time this happens here are a few links, a post by Hussam & a video to help you get around that. Also thanks to @Whodan2 ‘s, @monamahfouz ‘s & @mand0z contributions as well. But first watch this video . . .

Watch this video and see the events that unfold at minute 1:00 of the video.

Here is a proxy link you can use, provided by @Whodan2

This is Hotspot Shield, a program that allows you to access blocked websites anonymously. Here’s the download link. Also works for websites with videos.

You can still access FaceBook over 3G on ur mob phone via VPN (iPhone, Android & BlackBerry) on http://hotspotshield.com/clientless/iphone/

There is another one for Mac/PC/Linux that allows you to do the same on your computer: http://www.torproject.org/download/download.html.en

    Here’s a free Squid based proxy (very high quality and fast) to get around facebook, youtube and twitter blocked networks: Set your proxy to host: “api.marketapi.com” and http port to “3128”.
