Twitter requires phone number to join. These pieces of shit want to dox you, if you are not a kike nigger faggot and are posting the truth.

Buy a burner phone with cash if you are really that paranoid, and use that phone number.

In Europe, where words can get you a police visit, my strategy was to use a dodgy Aliexpress phone with an old OS or a second hand phone with a busted screen, and take the battery out when it wasn't in use. Funnily, there was undoubtedly chink spyware on it, but I doubt the zipperheads care if I am releasing documents stolen from local politicians, inflaming personal/political beefs and using gamer words.

I only connected via VPN, ofc, and once you register an account delete the phone number, in 30 days if you aren't banned you can sometimes use it again as it's off the records.

If they really want me, then they really want me, but that would involve all sorts of resources they can't afford to waste on small timers.

Keep the phone in a faraday bag when it's at home / not being used, also get one with a removable battery.

Dumb phones work for text verification, and all you need to do is change out the sim card.

Where are going to use that burner phone? At your house sitting right next to your normie phone where they can trivially be linked together? These aren't your early 2000s dumb brick phones anymore, even if you take out the battery many phones can still be tracked very precisely.

You only need to use that phone number once or twice. Once it's done, and you have an account, throw it away.

Regardless, it's twitter, why even try to go on that cess pool, even if free speech is back on the menu. People need less social media in their life, not more. Me included.

Doubt it, you'll be getting random "We need to verify your account" messages.

Blergaderg 3 points ago +3 / -0

You can verify it with security questions if you don't have your phone.

There's websites where you can get a number to validate then it deletes it

I have lost a bunch of accounts this way, if you sign up via Tor it's almost an instaban. It 'raises the stakes' of tweeting, which was part of the pressure to conform- admission fee, then hypersensitive, biased tranny jannies would ban you for upsetting louise mensch. If anybody is old enough to remember Something Awful, twitter completed that arc in a few years

The computer at your local library is another good option.

Something Awful at least had a financial justification, since they'd get ten dollars every time you signed up.

it was always like this, and this is why they are "improving" twitter

so people get doxxable once again

yeah that's why i've never used (((twitter))). i make an account to shitpost and within an hour they lock me out of it unless i give them my phone. Fuck that

I don’t have a Twitter but according to a quick search you can just put an email when it asks for a phone number

WeedleTLiar 2 points ago +2 / -0

I don't even really care about being doxxed; I quit any job that would fire me for speaking my words on my off time, same for family and friends. If they were asking for a scan of a drivers license, I probably wouldn't care.

But there's no way I'm giving them my phone number to spam with their garbage ads.

They don't require it to sign up, at least on the webpage version, but after I created a new account a few days ago, and after shit-posting for a while, i got locked out with it asking me for a phone number. Said fuck it and logged out.

I saw that. They can suck my balls. as others here have said, get a burner phone.
