I wouldn't worry about it too much. Twitter is a bit cancerous.

Wait, what? If you aren't even using a phone app what does it matter that your phone "is unsupported." Did you have to provide a phone number to prove you are real and does it somehow only think cell phone numbers are real? Can it even tell the difference. Did they need to text your phone number or something to confirm your being?

Weird.


this is the page I am stuck at
Add a phone number.
Enter the phone number that you would like to associate with your Twitter account.
We will send you an SMS with a verification code. SMS fees may apply.

I guess they think everyone owns a cell phone

It's apparently a common problem. Google Voice seems to be a popular workaround. Here's a step-by-step:

Since you don't have a cellphone, make sure you tell Google Voice to, "verify by call," to your landline, rather than text. When you give Twitter the Google Voice number, their SMS message will appear in your Gmail account, so no cellphone should be necessary.

Twitter is where all the dank memes are. Also where you'll see something stupid the second you open it.
