Failed to Ping Twitter

For Windows, you can open the Command Prompt (cmd.exe), and for Mac OS, you can open the Terminal application, then enter the following command:

ping twitter.com

Remember to change the above "twitter.com" to the site you are going to ping.

If there are all "timeout" errors in the result, then the site is blocked in your area or its server is down, so how to figure it out?

You can run a VPN and ping the site again, if there are no or few errors, the site is blocked, and if there are still all "timeout" errors, then the site is down.
