Create a new computer set with twitter.com IPs and put it in the exception list in the access rule.

If that does not work, please check logs , what does it tell ?

Hi Osama,
It is as simple as you can in TMG. just use *.twitter.com/* in override category.

Select Web Access Policy Rule ===> Configure Url Category overrides in Active Pane and override above category with different URL Category.

I hope it could resolved your issue.

the provided solution will not work if users access twitter as https://twitter.com.

Only blocking that by IP address OR enabling https inspection will work.

It does not make sense that TMG/ISA can read encrypted packets with out https inspection enabled.

try to view logs while accessing https://twitter.com,,, which rule blocks the traffic ?
