Anonymous Twitter and Friendica on Android

The official twitter app used to have proxy settings,  not surprisingly it had been dropped.

The best alternative client for Android seems to be the open source Twidere app. It’s available in f-droid too.

After installation, simply go to

Settings > Network

And set your proxy as:


Proxy host:
localhost (you can alternatively write

Proxy port: 8118

This would securely route your traffic to your TOR network,  provided that you have installed Orbot on android, available here

In order to be anonymous your twitter registration should be done anonymously. If you do not have a VPN connection,  you should use TOR browser to register an anonymous email and also twitter signup.

Happy anonymity.
