    Ok guys, this shit has started on Friday, I got 200+ accounts asked for SMS verification. As many of you, I just buy PVA accounts and don't own the numbers, so all those accounts were lost.

    First, I thought it's due to FL version update, as I have installed it the same day, but seems like this has nothing to do with the bot, as some people running an older software version, still had same problem.

    Looks like a Twitter general cleaning wave. The weird thing is, that nobody talks about this in the forum, except few people in the bot thread. I suggest everyone having same problems to cooperate here in this thread to share observations. We need to collect more data on what is going on.

    I was ready to buy a ton of SIM cards and save my survived accounts, but then I saw this:

    Also, yesterday, a friend of mine has tried to change some phone numbers on survived accounts and it was almost impossible to get an SMS from Twitter. When, after many attempts, he got an SMS , Twitter said: "we can't verify your account at the moment, please try later"..

    I think they didn't expected such big amounts of SMS verification attempts and they servers are overloaded. Also I do Twitter marketing a year now, and from my observations, those all type cleaning waves usually take 2-5 days, and then they calm down. Of course I can be wrong. Let's wait and see.

    hey man! Thank you for starting this thread.
    Re-verification requests killed majority amount of my accounts last two days. I'm thinking about the ways to combat that requests.
    I've thought about buying SIMs as well.
    Actually have no idea how to absolutely avoid that type of requests.

    Twitter become more and more complicated...
    If the solution is not buying SIMs... then what?

    You can verify your accounts by using a fake phone number on site.
    There are some sites that provides you optioons to verify accounts by using phone numbers and get codes on that sites. You must have to search on Google for these sites.

    Since this change, I am really scared of doing any following on the 10 accounts I manage. I've been using a chrome extension to do the following, with 2 seconds delay between follows, and it was working fine until now. I just tried not to use the extension and do manual follow on some of my accounts, the first one got locked after 100 or so follows, and the next ones get locked after only 2-3 follows. I don't use proxies, so it maybe has some new complicated check taking in account the ip address, together with the time between follows.

    I am able to unblock the accounts with phone verification, but after trying to follow again, they get blocked again.
    Will try to lay low with the follows for the time being

    well, i'm not surprise..
    someday, twitter will ask phone verification..
    just like facebook..

    btw, my solution is..
    buy simcard..
    in my country, only 3000 rupiah ($0.3)

    and, after verification, keep that simcard..

    I also had a few accounts blocked 2 days ago, it is unusual for me. I will simply buy more accounts then they block.

    I wonder why there isn't much discussion on the forum about this situation. Is there anyone who has 100+ accounts and didn't got SMS verification for atleast 50%?

    Ive been using smspva.com to reverify my accounts when they get phone verification, however Im sure smspva reuses their numbers because within 3 days accounts will be sms locked again.

    I looked at smsogram.com because they have a sweet deal to buy us based number forever for 1 time fee of $4.50, but they only accept bitcoin of which I do not have. Damn.

    So can anyone tell me how this buying sim cards works and where I can buy them IN USA? I have 4 spare android prepaid smartphones on sprint prepaid network that are deactivated. Is it as easy as just putting the sim card in and it will be active and what sort of monthly bill for phone service to have these phone numbers/sim cards?

    I don't see how having sim cards may save the situation. Are you willing to reverify after every 100 follows?

    If it has to be done then it has to be done. At least with using sim cards one can continue using the same number for recieving sms rather than switching the account's number every week every other time they ask for phone verification. Thats what looks suspicious as all hell and its what I can't stand about smspva is that they retire the number after 9 or 10 days and you have to pick a new number wtf

    I think owning sim cards is the only reliable way. You can use a service like smspva.com but personally I wouldn't trust anyone for a long therm run.

    We are talking about re-verification issue here.

    Lucky you. In my country I have to pay 1.59 EUR for a sim card, but I can get SMS 350 days with those, which is a big plus.

    I believe this is a temporary issue. Also maybe your following settings were to aggressive? Tomorrow I will buy some sim cards and will test my self.

    I have never had this problem with twitter. How bad are you spamming? Jack Dorsey loves spammers, it's what he keeps his stock level up based on.

    Agreed with you. Don't do too fast follow unfollow otherwise it will ask for re-verification.

    Yes, they were aggressive a bit :) Right now, i just increased delays, reverifyed accounts, and some of them were able to follow up to 200. Btw, just before getting SMS verefication all accounts received 403 from twitter.
    Its not about spamming this time, its because of following.

    I don`t think that this is problem with following I think it `s about how aged accounts. Because older accounts (more than 1 year) can follow 700 without problem, without verification.

    Did you had any sms verification issues at all?

    Big follow/unfollow delays?
