Sign In with Twimply where Twitter.com is blocked
Before you can use Twimply, you need to give it access to your account. We have to redirect you to Twitter.com to do this. (And so does every other Twitter web app – read more here.)
However, Twitter.com is sometimes being blocked – by a censoring government, or by overzealous system administrators.
Twimply offers a workaround: if you can sign in to Twimply somewhere, then you can re-use that sign in information anywhere — without having to visit Twitter.com again!
How to re-use your Twimply sign in
If you can sign in to Twimply somewhere (at home, for example), follow these steps:
- Sign in to Twimply where you do have access to Twitter.com
- Once signed in, click the link "Create sign in for where Twitter.com is blocked" (you'll find that link under Account stuff in the footer of every page)
- Fill in your email address and choose a password
- Check your mail: Twimply has immediately sent you a sign in link
- Anywhere where Twitter is blocked, use that link and fill in your password
- You're done!
If you can't sign in to Twimply anywhere
If you are in a censoring country like China or Iran, Twitter.com is probably blocked everywhere for you. I'm afraid I have no safe solution to help you out. I'm really sorry.
The only — very unsafe — thing I can suggest is to give your Twitter username and password to someone who has access to Twitter. They can then follow the steps outlined above on your behalf, and pass the sign in link back to you.
It doesn't need any explanation that giving someone your Twitter username and password is usually a very bad idea. Only give it to someone you really, really trust!
Old-style sign in until august 16th
Finally, you can still use c.twimply.com. That's an older version of Twimply, which uses with the old-style username/password sign in. However, username/password sign in will be disabled by Twitter gradually, starting august 16th.
Still got problems signing in?
If you still can't sign in to Twimply, don't hesitate to contact me.
