      Problem blocking twitter

      Hi I am really struggling to block twitter through my router. Other sites are blocking fine but doesn't matter what keywords i use twitter still won't block. I read on another post to try opendns but as sky don't let you edit the DNS settings that's not working either I really need it blocked through the router to save downloading apps to my other devices.

      any suggestions are appreciated thanks.

      Re: Problem blocking twitter

      I think it may be because Twitter uses SSL and any site using SSL can't be blocked on the router using the usual method. Hopefully someone here with more tech knowledge than me can help you with a workaround.
