    I made my Twitter account a long time ago and had found the password. I logged in once but the next time I tried it said I need to enter a verification code that had been emailed to me :censored: The company I had my email address with no longer exists. What's the easiest way to gain access to my account? I'm considering brute forcing the verification code using autohotkey or Hydra. Any advice?

    To be clear I have the username, password and email address to the Twitter, I just can't log into the email to get the verification code.

    Why don't you try phone number validation?

    Buy the domain of the company that is not in business and recreate your email.

    You have to use your phone for verification of twitter account.
    Another way is to click on "Forget your Password" and then, try to login by using new password. Maybe it'll start working.

    Why would you use a company email for social media on the first place? I dunno, I smell something fishy here. Hmm.

    Well your smelling yourself because I made the account using the company e-mail because my job was to test logging in using Twitter.

    Actually the only way will be to re-buy the domain or contact with Twitter support. Although I'm not sure if they will be able to help.
