    I can say that big enough portion of our accounts will be gone.

    Twitter now is asking to confirm your phone number by sending you a code.

    Its not the end of the world, but its an end of an era!

    They all need growth... and fakeaccounts are counted towards reports even if they know they are fake. That's why usually only the worst spammers get banned.

    It was a new account like 10 days old and stopped following from yesterday, I was logging manually to check what is going on and this happened. I already removed 5 account from the new batch becouse of this and I am still checking, I think I will probably removing 10-15 which is terrible.
    After that I will check my old accounts with a heavy hart lol

    How many accounts can you have per phone number? I have 3. One is business, one is for my blog and one is personal.

    Hello,

    one of my account has had this security measure, but I believe it's because it was "borderline" (quite agressive, in fact). Other accounts are still safe and alive.


    They can't ban all bot accounts: Twitter would 1/3 or 1/4 of all his accounts, and they can't. They are in deep shit now, they don't want to show that they are smaller than they say.

    i first noticed this 2 weeks ago, someone made a thread around that time: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...tter-acc-lock-asking-phone-verify-unlock.html

    i'm using 2 PVA accs per ip, accs were created from different ips, phone verified with different phone numbers, 1 domain per account
    i'm getting this phone only reset just occasionally (which is a reverification) and i'm also getting the regular password reset with the option to do it via email or phone, i see absolutely no consistency in it, i do the same aggressive following/unfollowing with all of my accs, some of them get the regular reset, some of them this new phone only, but it doesn't effect too many accs, maybe 1 per day out of 100, i just replace the accs which get this phone only reset, it's a little pain in the ass, but definitely not the end until they keep it this way and not all the accs are affected, just a few

    According to Twitter support:
    [h=3]Can I add my phone number to multiple accounts?[/h] You can add your phone number to up to 10 accounts. It's important to note that only the account most recently linked to this phone number can perform SMS commands and receive SMS notifications for account activity like Direct Messages, new followers, Retweets, etc. Any other accounts you have associated with your phone number will not be able to edit Text notifications settings. Each account that has your phone number associated with it will still receive SMS text messages for password reset requests or security features like login verification.



    If I remember it correctly, they will ask you to add a phone number and then verify it.

    I'm not much into Twitter, but I often use this website for PVAs. Not free, but cheap.

    getting PVAs isn't really the issue here, the problem with this new type of phone only reset, that you'll need the phone number to stay active and accessible by you or the acc is toast, but i think smspva offers re-verify, so it's a good suggestion after all :)

    After 10 days running 10 acc are gone and 190 are left.

    I will start to check my old acc and hope they are fine.

    This is some basic security, Twitter became spam house in the last few months, good for them if they invest more in security.

    Really dude, "good for them"?

    We are on the other side, I don't see people opening threads about how google is doing a good job deindexing all of our sites...good for them!

    Looks random but maybe we can find the main cause.

    What settings are you using wizard? honeybird dilettante
    Would be good if you all can share settings, accounts per proxy and what you think can make your accounts on "radar".

    I don't think this would finish the spam, maybe it can clear a little bit but if anyone want to spam he can do it whatever.

    And, nice share praetserge it looks interesting if finally this is usual.

    I got hit on a few of my accounts over the last week but its only a small number. All my accounts look the same:

    1 account per email
    1 account per dedicated proxy
    All accounts were aged (2+ years old)
    I do not follow/unfollow anyone. I was following 0 people in all accounts and had at least 30K followers in each account.
    Each account posted between 900-920 tweets per day. The posted domains to each account varied (approx 50+ domains per account) but I never crossed the domains over the accounts.

    Not all accounts got hit. Nothing unusual/different to the accounts that did get hit.
