Top 5 Twitter Proxies in 2019

Overcome Twitter restrictions and challenges with top-notch Twitter proxies in 2019.

Having more than 321 million monthly active users, Twitter is one of the most popular social media platforms. Although using Twitter is free and can be used in most of the world, it is blocked in some countries. Majority of schools and companies nowadays are also blocking access to social networking sites. In addition, Twitter allows only one account per user and stops people from taking advantage of this platform’s features to market their businesses or communicate with their fans and followers. To overcome these challenges, Twitter proxies can be used.
I have dived into the world of Twitter proxy providers in order to find the best services out there. Here are my top 5 Twitter proxies providers in 2019:

1. Smartproxy

Smartproxy earned my respect and took first place for several reasons: They have one of the biggest proxy pool in the market with over 10 million unique residential IP addresses. All of them are going through real devices over 195 different locations, including 8 major cities. Their residential proxies share no subnetwork, so they are immune to bulk bans. Smartproxy does not limit connection requests — residential proxies have backconnect nodes for unlimited connections, so every connection request gets a new IP address. A sticky IP session can be also used to keep an IP for a longer time which is very useful if you want to automate anything. Smartproxy pricing model is based on subscription with data consumption limits. Their pricing starts from $75 but with coupon code “SMARTCOUPON” you can get a 20% discount. Smartproxy also offers a 3-day money-back guarantee. More information about Smartproxy residential proxies can be found on this review.

2. GeoSurf

GeoSurf is another great proxy provider. It has over 2 million unique residential IP addresses going through real devices over 130 Geo locations. Their residential IPs are based on a P2P Network, this means you can send unlimited parallel requests through millions of verified working IPs. Their customers get quick and friendly support via phone, email or Skype. However, the price of their service is a few times higher than the standard proxy provider. GeoSurf pricing starts from $450 and is based on subscription with data consumption limits, making them one of the most expensive providers.

3. StormProxies

Compering to Smartproxy and GeoSurf, StormProxies might look really small. They have over 70 thousand IP addresses, which is not so impressive. Despite that, they can compete in the market because of their affordable prices. They start at $15 a month. However, the pricing model is based on subscription with data consumption and IPs limits. For the cheapest plan, you will get only 5 private Twitter proxies and 1GB of the network. StormProxies offers a 48-hour money-back guarantee, so you can easily test their proxies first to see if they’re really for you, without risking any investment.

4. SquidProxies

SquidProxies is a trustworthy private proxies provider that offers elite anonymous HTTP/HTTPS proxies. This means they can access websites using all of the popular browsers, such as Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc. However, they only have around 2000 residential IPs in 10 different locations. There are several packages that SquidProxies provides, but all of them has locations and proxies limits. Monthly pricing starts from $24, making them one of the cheapest proxy providers.

5. NetNut

The service seems to be more successful with the usage of big-scale procedures. NetNut lets you define Static IP using a unique identifier. The system ensures that each identifier will be mapped to the same exit IP. They also can provide a unique IP per each browser session. The cheapest monthly plan costs $300 and has data consumption limits. However, they do not tell how many different locations they have and how many residential IPs are in their pool. Because of this, NetNut ends my list taking last place.

Twitter proxies will help you overcome all challenges and restrictions on Twitter. They should be secure, fast and reliable, meaning that datacenter proxies and free proxies found on the internet should be bypassed. I hope that this list will help you to choose the right Twitter proxies for you.
