    I'm using a twitter account maker tool (I forget the name of it; it's not that great), which obviously requires a solid list of proxies if you want to get your account-making done quickly.

    It has a very poor proxy indexer (goes to other sites with proxies listed in plain text, and loads it into the app), and 90% of the proxies are dead or have a 10000ms latency.

    So I got an idea... why not use HotSpot Shield (the free VPN service) to quickly create 10-15 accounts with the app, then disconnect/reconnect with a new IP and continue?

    I gave it a shot, and it worked wonderfully with my first VPN connection... then I dc'd and rc'd, and "Navigation to the [Twitter] page was cancelled." Every time.

    Now, the app I'm using utilizes IE8, and Twitter loaded perfectly when I started a new instance of IE8, but it still didn't work in the app.

    I know this is a somewhat specific topic, but has anyone tried using HotSpot Shield in lieu of a list of proxies? Did it work for you?

    yes it does work HSS is tunneling through a vpn. Your Freedom, Http tunnel, Ping Fu also work this way. I use Yf because it's the best by far combined with OpenVpn. No need for proxies in this case ofc.
