Twitter wants my phone number!

I had one twitter account, I deleted that! Then I resigned up for twitter because I wanted to follow some celebrities I like. For a while it was fine, I didn’t do anything wrong. Hadn’t used twitter in good while, recently when I loaded up on the app on my iPhone I noticed my account was blocked. So I emailed twitter, and after a few attempts and not one human reply from the company my account was unblocked.

After one like I did, I went back on, this time they want to verify me, but how they want to verify who I am just annoys me. They want my mobile number! I get enough phone calls from scammers, so why the hell do I want to give a company with historically bad security my mobile. And why on Earth does a company that has no need for mobile numbers what your mobile number. This is just floored in all aspects in my view. You can verify through email, many other companies do that and don’t ask for a mobile number.

So at the moment I refuse to verify via giving them my phone number, which just means I am still blocked!

In my view Twitter is providing a false log, an invalid block, followed by a verification system to silicate your phone number. I fear they are acting like criminals to silicate your information. Whats next, are they going to sell that information to the highest bidder? Or just get hacked by someone else, so that other criminal can get everyones phone number!
