I got my phone, unlocked from a friend and put it on my plan with a new number. I downloaded the app and tried to log onto my twitter account and it asked me to confirm my phone number and do a re-capatcha. Then my account was suspended. I contacted twitter support about this but only get an automated response with no help. will changing my number fix this? or is it also tied to my phone's i.p address? i've been using my twitter only on my mac computer because i'm scared of i log in on my phone, my new account will also be suspended. Please help, i'm so confused.

If you've created an account via your mobile phone

You may have created an account via text message if you texted the word "Start" or "Follow username" to your Twitter shortcode. This process creates an account for you that is attached to your phone number.

Enter your phone number here to access the account attached to it. If an account is found, complete web sign up by clicking Continue. You can then remove the number/address from the device settings page, and deactivate the account if you want to start over.

Indeed, the thread is quite old, but the problem still here. I wanted to log in, but Twitter has identified me as suspicious, so the account was suspended. It turned out that the problem was with the phone number.
