  1. Create a new web access layer.
  2. Set up rule one as follows:
    • Source: ANY
    • Destination: twitter.com
    • Actio : DENY
  3. Set up a second rule in the same layer as follows:
    • Source: request header referrer containing twitter.com
    • Destination: ANY

  4. Install policy.


Using Content Policy Language (CPL), add the following code to your local policy file:
