phone number? f*** u, twitter

Thursday, December 20th, 2018

For some reasons I spent a lot of time recently thinking I would like to try twitter. Probably it’s because there is twitter desktop client availabe in linux distributions… corebird

So I signed up on twitter using my email address. After a couple of days, the account was suspended for “breaking the rules” – which is pretty amazing given that I’ve never twitted anything so far.

the only way to un-suspend the account? (re-animate?) provide a (mobile) phone number. well, fark you… not going to happen.

I’ve tried to find alternatives… there seem to be some but I’m not going to spend time creating fake phone numbers just to try to stay ahead in a game of cats and mice for a short while as twitter seems to be really strict about it and blocking phone number blocks and not allowing this and that.

update: fixed two typos
