    Unblocking Twitter in School

    we are using twitter in my schools to post short articles (take a pic - add a few words - tweeet - job done) but for some reason this is not working on idevices but fine on 'droids and PCs

    Is there some i-specific more urls than I need to unblock to get it working on idevices?

    I think pictures are on a separate URL.

    On a side note, I would be careful. This weekend I stumbled across a graphic image by mistake...

    You will need to unblock twimg.com as this is where the images are stored .However, you should be aware that this url is blocked for a very good reason, it contains unmoderated images that are wholly inappropriate for a school. We have twitter available for some members of staff but it's blocked for the rest of the school.

    No problem with images as this is to allow teachers to tweet out from Ipads/pods (Primary schools)

    I'll add in that url but I'm not hopeful as the basic ipad twitter app is not connecting at all but like I say 'droids and PCs are fine

    Are you filtering the iDevices transparently?
    Also, are you using the iDevice app or going through the browser?

    Using default twitter app on pads but now you mention it, in using hootsuite app on droid and web based hootsuite on PC(which is bound too work of course)
    I'll try different ipad app.
    Filtering is via CLEO, I can control URLs but not ports
