If you’ve got a problem visiting Twitter.com — which, clearly you have, if you’re using a standard Chinese internet connection — then there are a number of alternatives you can use instead.
One point — for the Chinese censors reading, blocking Dabr won’t help you. David rather smartly wrote the code to port extremely, extremely easily — as he explained in the interview:
“In theory, the site ‘dabr.co.uk’ could be blocked, but as I mentioned – there are many copies of my site up and running created by Chinese users just in case that happens.”
One Twitter user in China explained: “we use third-party clients of Twitter, like dabr.co.uk, official Twitter site was banned this afternoon.”
In fact it’s so smart and lightweight, I reckon you could probably host Dabr from a Nokia running a web server.
Nice work David!
