Can't create developer account


I try to create a developer account and it says I have no phone associated with my account. I add my phone and request a verification code via sms. The code never comes. I request new code…never comes. I try over and over and over… still no verification code via sms is coming o me. I’ve contacted support received instructions for the steps I’ve already done. What other alternatives might I have?

Hi @jonahern - unfortunately I can’t help you with this, as your question is an account-related question and this forum is reserved for questions related to the Twitter developer platform and APIs.

I suggest you visit the Twitter Help Center (at the bottom of the page you will find ways of getting in touch with Twitter Support).

I’m going to close this ticket.
