Problems with Twitter

    Recently I've been wanting to start using Twitter to keep track of news, just because things are kept simple and short. It seems more old device friendly than most other news sites and social media services.
    However once I've registered using my email address and given them enough info about my human existence (if I may put it that way :'D), within five or ten minutes my account gets locked due to them detecting "suspicious traffic on this account". To open my account, I would be required to enter my phone number, which is, in my opinion, too much information given for a simple cause.
    I tried registering with another email and few things disabled that might've been the possible source of this "traffic" but I end up having my another account locked for nothing as well.

    So, I wonder if there's any way to go around the requirement of giving your phone number or if anyone else has encountered this problem. For those more experienced with using Twitter, how much information have you given to have it problem-free?

    Twitter has had my phone number for years without any whisper of an issue.

    That said, are you activating your account(s) with the confirmation e-mail they're sending you, so that their meager gatekeeping systems can be somewhat sure you aren't a bot?

    Yes, I have activated my account/s through confirmation email. That's also why I've been surprised about it.
