Ukrainian numbers can no longer be used to create Twitter accounts
Since yesterday, subscribers of Ukrainian operators (Kyivstar, Vodafone, and lifecell) have been unable to log into Twitter using their phone number. The company has stopped sending two-factor authentication codes. Also, subscribers of Ukrainian operators cannot create new accounts on the social network.
This was pointed out by UNITED24.media – a media outlet covering the war in Ukraine and the Russian aggression for the whole world.
Hey @elonmusk, it seems like it's no longer possible to have a Ukrainian number verify a Twitter account/two-factor authentication. Ukraine is not in your list of countries, see our screenshot.— UNITED24.media (@United24media) December 13, 2022

So far, Twitter has not given an official explaination as to why subscribers of Ukrainian operators have been stripped of the opportunity to create accounts on the social network.
As IMI reported, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz is considering leaving Twitter.
In late October, Elon Musk bought Twitter for $44 billion.
Twitter restored former US President Donald Trump's account following a poll on unblocking it which Musk posted on Twitter.
Musk also announced that the suspended accounts that did not violate the law and did not spread spam would be restored.
On November 21, Elon Musk presented a concept of a new social media called "Twitter 2.0".
Twitter has also abandoned its anti-misinformation policy regarding COVID-19.
Help us be even more cool!
