    Ok here's my story.

    I had an iphone 5. I enabled login verification on my twitter account.(where u use your phone as like a second password).

    I get a 5s. I did not write the backup code down. Now when i log into twitter from the desktop version, it says its sending a login verification to my phone (i'm guessing my 5).... and when i try to log in through my phone, it says my password needs to be reset. So basically when i log on through desktop, it gives me a message saying i need to go to my phone, then when i go to phone, it says i need a new password. its like a never ending cycle. What's my next step? i've tried to contact twitter through some ticket help system but i dont even know if they are listening/reading. Am i SOL? Do I need to create another twitter account? Or should i wait on twitter to reach out to me? (i doubt they even care).

    Please guys, any help is appreciated.

    Did you register your phone number with them? If so, check for an option to send you an SMS verification code rather than using the twitter app on the phone you no longer have.

    i'm thinking i'm screwed... there are a lot of peeps with these issues... they'll lose their phone, upgrade, whatever... and then they are stuck in this loop.

    That wouldn't work. I'd still get the same errors, I'm sure. I don't have any magical twitter powers (although that would be cool).
