Twitter is among the top 20 social media platforms of all time around the world. This might sound like a pretty big deal to most, but it isn’t the full extent of the platform’s potential. If things worked out just slightly differently, it might be among the top 5 platforms today, not the top 20.
There are many reasons why Twitter didn’t max out its potential after its launch; one might be luck, but there were other reasons, too.
First of all, Twitter was not an off-the-bat success, unlike Instagram and Facebook. It took the platform around a year to gain traction among internet users. Even that could’ve worked out in their favor, but unfortunately, Facebook launched right around when users started noticing Twitter.
Still, losing out on all those creative, fresh-minded users has cost Twitter. And what’s more, the news source reputation Twitter wanted to be is also tainted. There’ve been a few cases of fake and false news for views and clicks on Twitter, making users feel anxious and misinformed.
Despite these issues and obstacles, Twitter is still strong, with more than 500 million users. There are informational threads and posts all over the platform if you know where to look and what you want to learn. So, while Twitter isn’t perfect, it still has several redeeming qualities, like all other social media platforms.
In today’s blog, we’ll discuss how to fix the “Please enter a valid phone number” on Twitter.
How to Fix “Please enter a valid phone number” on Twitter
Step 1: Install the Twitter mobile app on your smartphone and launch it.
Step 2: The first page upon launch will have the words See what’s happening in the world right now. There are two buttons underneath that: Continue with Google or Create account. Tap on the second option.
Step 3: In the Create your account section, you’ll be asked to enter your Name, Phone number/email address, and Date of birth.
Step 4: Enter the information, and don’t forget to triple-check your phone number to prevent any errors.
Step 5: You’ll then be asked to enter an OTP you’ll receive on the number you just submitted.
Step 6: Enter a strong password, add your profile picture, choose a unique username, and you’re all set!
There you go! Now you know how to create an account on Twitter without the “Please enter a valid phone number” error popping up.
In the end
As we end this blog, let’s recap all we’ve discussed today.
None of us like to give out our phone number to anyone we don’t trust, and with good reason. Anyone’s phone number in the wrong hands can make the owner’s life a living hell.
However, trust us when we say that Twitter is a tried and trusted source. You don’t need to hesitate before giving them your number, as they will only verify your Twitter account through an OTP sent on that number.
If you see the “Please enter a valid phone number” error on your smartphone, don’t worry. It only means you’ve entered your phone number wrongly or in the wrong order. Correct it, and you’re good to go.
