Using Twitter to locate lists of proxy servers or virtual proxy networks is hit-or-miss. Variations of the keyword terms correspond to a wide range of Twitter handles, and many of these accounts do not link to proxy servers. Click through lists of Twitter handles to find useful accounts.

Twitter handles that feature links to proxy servers typically tweet shortened URLs daily, so follow these URLs as soon as they appear. Most filtering systems eventually update their databases, identify proxy servers and initiate the appropriate content-blockers quickly. Vigilant filters such as Barracuda are especially difficult to bypass. Once a proxy server is filtered, find a new, unblocked proxy server to continue surfing the Internet anonymously.

Depending on your browser, you can find free proxy server apps and add-ons in the Google Chrome and Firefox Web stores. Use the Web store search tool, compare multiple apps and add-ons, and download them as desired. Gom VPN is one of Google Chrome's most popular VPN apps. It does not require configuring, is approximately three megabytes and is activated with a click. Firefox has a similar add-on called Anonymox.
