My issue is similar to Registering RW number at Twitter
however the work around does not work for me.
In the linked thread it is recommended to use google voice, however GV will not allow me to use this number. When exploring why that is I suspect because phone numbers are recycled it is likely someone had the number I now have before I did and also signed up for google voice. Read about this issue here: https://support.google.com/voice/thread/965420?hl=en
At any rate. Twitter locked me out of my account for some reason I can not yet figure out. To get back in I have to pass a google recapture (which I did, cause I’m human obviously) and I have to register a phone number with them so they can send me a text. They will not accept the RW number and I can not get a GV number to point to my RW number. I can not even contact twitter support for some reason because they say I have tried to many times and I have to wait (i waited a day, still does not work)
I realize this is not twitter support, but this is a rather big issue with RW … in the linked thread southpaw said that someone was investigating the issue but no follow up was made…
