Twitter's Anti-Harassment Tool Tracks Phone Numbers

I'm not sure how well any of this is going to work. Trolls always seem to find ways to come back. frown

Under the changes, users who receive temporary bans may have to verify an email address or a phone number to resume using Twitter. (Other users can be banned permanently.) Email addresses are relatively easy to obtain, but phone numbers are harder آ— and by checking phone numbers against a list of banned users, Twitter could be able to keep more abusers and harassers from creating accounts.
