Blocking Twitter on iOS 7

Hi Everyone

I'm new to Covenant Eyes and think it is great.  I've got the CE app installed on my iPhone 5S, but soon quickly learnt of in-app browsers.  I've deleted most of my apps that offer in-app browsing (very sad about Gmail and Google Maps) and use the iOS restrictions to block the app store.

My problem is Whatsapp.  It links to their Twitter account through an in-app browser.  Where I'm from, Whatsapp is the primary method of communication, so I can't just delete the app.  

I've tried on numerous occasions to use the iOS restrictions to block twitter.com, but it just doesn't work.  I've had this experience in the past trying to block the site.  Can anyone recommend what URL I should be adding to the restrictions block list to stop twitter from loading? 

Please, this is the last hurdle standing in my way.

Kind regards from South Africa

Welcome Jono,

To answer your questions I have typically just put twitter.com into the list of blocked sites using iOS's built in web restrictions. As far as I was able to determine today that appeared to be working fine. I will ping our iOS developers on this and see if they know anything I do not (which is probable) and let you know as soon as I learn anything of value.

Thanks
