Step 5: You’ll find your newly generated phone number. Use this number when prompted to enter a valid phone number on Twitter.

Now, complete signing up on Twitter for your account using the Burner app number.

2. Sign Up with Email Instead

You can use the following steps to sign up for Twitter using your email address:

Step 1: If Twitter is not accepting your phone number, look for the option that says “Use email instead.” This option will allow you to proceed with the registration using your email.

Step 2: Once you choose the “Use email instead” option, you’ll be prompted to enter your email address in the provided field. Make sure to enter a valid email address that you have access to. After entering your email, click on “Next” to proceed.

Step 3: Once you’ve entered your email address and other required information, Twitter will verify the details you’ve provided. If everything is correct, you’ll see a “Sign up” option at the bottom of the page. Tap on it to continue.

Tap on Sign up

Step 4: After signing up, you’ll receive a verification code via email. Check your email inbox, including the spam folder, for the verification email from Twitter. Open the email and find the six-digit verification code provided. Copy the code or remember it.

Once you have the verification code, return to the Twitter verification page and enter the code in the provided field. After that, you’ll be directed to set a strong password for your Twitter account. Choose a password with more than eight characters, and make sure it’s secure. Click on “Next” and you’re all set to access your new Twitter account.

Why Does It Say Please Enter A Valid Phone Number On Twitter:

There are a few reasons why you might face this issue on Twitter: 

1. Twitter Won’t Accept Phone Number

If you’ve previously used your phone number for another Twitter account, you won’t be able to use it again for a new account.

Twitter may have certain restrictions on phone numbers from specific regions or countries. In some cases, phone numbers from certain providers or virtual numbers may not be accepted by Twitter’s system.

2. Make Sure the Country Code is Correct

Whenever you’re entering a phone number to create your Twitter account, you need to enter your country code first and then enter the phone number. You need to make sure that you’re using the correct country code. If you don’t know the country code or are not sure about it, you can search for it on the internet and see the code. 

Country codes are there to help Twitter know your location and therefore, it gets easier to send the verification code to verify your phone number.  Do not put the country code after the phone number.

3. You typed the wrong Number

As the number you’re entering is required to send the verification code, you should always make sure that the phone number is correct and is working.

If you enter an incorrect number Twitter won’t be able to accept it for creating your account and therefore it will show this message Please enter a valid phone number.

Twitter uses the verification method to prevent bots from accessing your Twitter account. Therefore, whenever you get this error message you need to erase the number and enter a valid number and you’re one hundred percent sure about it.
