Here is what Twitter told me after I sent the confirmation code by SMS:
Of course, they couldn't have figured out that they don't like my cell phone number before I had to send a for-pay message to their German message service.
The same thing happened to me with Twitter in the US already as well. I am a "pre-paid" customer there, and I was similarly told that I am unable to use Twitter on the phone in the US.
I seriously wonder what I've done wrong to be excluded from Twitter's phone service in two countries. What's going on?
