I can't seem to do so, the former says it's not a valid number.
Twitter expect you to sign up with an email address and or mobile number. FAQ
This is because they normally expect to send verification and notification messages by text to email or SMS text to the mobile. You can select a voice call to verify your registration but they don't send twitter message notifications by voice call.
TalkTalk's landline 'phone service is not enabled for SMS texts.
I don't think it being a landline is the problem, as I could do it successfully with BT's before.
So, effectively TT users are excluded from social networks. Awesome.
Not at all, TT do not support SMS to landlines as previously mentioned.
Social networks work absolutely fine, you just cannot register with a TT landline number.
I agree with Martin. "Social networks work absolutely fine for TalkTalk customers."
I'm not one to be 'tweeting' here there and everywhere but those that do find their static devices at home like desktop pc, laptops, notebook and tablets can access Twitter via TalkTalk broadband and the Wi-Fi of the TalkTalk router.
Mobile devices at home connect to Twitter using Wi-Fi and then via mobile network data or hot-spot Wi-Fi when out and about.
With the rapidly declining use of landlines, I wouldn't hold your breath that any ISP that currently doesn't support what you want is going to bother to enable it.
I'm left wondering if your remarks are just fatuous for effect. Yes, Google have ramped up authentication security. Is that a bad thing? Or to keep you safe and secure?
As Martin correctly says texting to landlines is unlikely to be implemented. Landlines are 'dead' in terms of radical new investments.
BT are continuing with plans to close down the copper line network over the next few years. Before long we'll all be using voice over internet 'phones and provided with voice, messaging, texting and multimedia delivery with 'phones connected to our broadband networks.
More new routers are appearing with a socket to connect up your home 'phone. That's the future for texting to a home 'phone if that's what you're looking for.
At our Thai properties, with full FTTP, each router provides two connections for phone lines.
VOIP is the future, RIP the copper/aluminium line, the sooner the better !
Well, if VOIP is accepted by these verification systems and it can be provided by TT I wouldn't mind, but is it? And Google hasn't ramped up anything, I came across the fact they don't ask for a number if done through mobile... so, what security, they just want to annoy desktop users, but Twitter still remains inaccessible, and that has nothing to do with security either as spambots are able to register in droves.
