Phone numbers are mandatory on Twitter... is not optional!

If one wants to have some account at Twitter he/ she MUST give them the phone number. It is not like anyone may choose not to give it, because they always lock down the account until the user gives Twitter their phone number (with some "security" argument to protect the community that you have done something suspicious or some poor excuse like that). I don't remember if they allow just to enter the phone, or if they also demand the e-mail... the phone I'm sure is mandatory, the account is almost immediately (few minutes) locked until some valid number is entered, but the e-mail I don't remember if they also demand it.
