Twitter: No, really, we're very sorry we sold your security info for a boatload of cash

The "trouble" is that while valid but disposable email addresses are easily generated and confirmed, most sites that take phone numbers as 2FA require you to prove that you can receive calls/messages on that number.

(I put trouble in quotation marks as being unable to sign up to this particular site seems to me like a benefit rather than a problem.)
