Are you locked out of your Twitter account and can’t get the mobile authentication working. The SMS isn’t coming through? Look no further.

Solution

NOTE: In order for this to work you must have a Twitter PIN, if you don’t there really isn’t any way to get one so you’ll probably have to contact support.

  1. First you need to find your short / long code (which is actually a mobile number:

  2. Then you need to send your Twitter PIN along with GO (Notice it’s uppercase) to the short / long code (which again is a mobile number). e.g. ‘1234 GO’ would be the text of your message
  3. Go back to Twitter and try and send the SMS verification again.
