    Long story short. I make Twitter accounts manually, I`ve got a nice VPN to hide my IP which worked just fine to make hundreds of accounts for about 7 months until a couple of weeks ago, when Twitter KNEW somehow it was ME creating the SECOND account and requested a phone number to verify the account.

    Changing web browsers does not work.
    Changing the IP address does not work.
    I also tried a different VPN and it`s the same story.
    Deleting cookies does not work.

    Since there is NO POSSIBLE way for them to know my real IP, how do they know it`s still me?!

    I think twitter are changing there policy. Its only matter of time when it will be mandatory to phone verified all new accounts.

    I hope not. Anyone experiencing the same thing? Do you guys still create your accounts as usual?

    I still can make but not as before.
    Before I could make 4-5 a day but now I can't make more then 2 without asking me for phone verification.

    have you tried an entirely different VPN from a different provider? it can be that whole ranges went poof or all of the ips of a provider got blacklisted, because there were a lot of abuse from them
    maybe you'll need specific private proxies from now on, which are good for account creation on twitter

    Solved the issue by moving to the mobile version of the app. Created 5 accs in 30 minutes, so far so good. Thanks for your replies.

    Good to hear. If you can no longer create accounts on that particular mobile device, try rooting it and change your device ID. If you can't do that then use a VM and install android. You can find a lot of tutorials on in the internet that teach you how to this.

    Try changing VPN with IP from other country from Europe and choose country where twitter is less popular they wont ask phone number verification there,but for US i think it will be required from now on as it is case with FB...
