Can't seem to activate my Koodo number with Twitter.

So I'm trying to activate my mobile with Twitter and I enter my phone number (with the area code, etc), however I do not ever receive the confirmation code which is supposed to come by text. I've waited for like half an hour and requested the code to be resent and then waited some more.

I've ported my number (about a year ago tho) and I've never had any problem neither receiving nor sending texts, however Twitter doesn't seem to work.

What should I do?

What do you mean exactly? I use Twitter apps without any activation via SMS. Or do they have a feature where you can text to tweet?

I see. I'll try to get an employee to look into this.

Actually after I googled "twitter mobile activation" to provide you with the link of what I was trying to do, the second link contained instructions -- had to text START or SIGNUP to 21212 and now it's working. Whew.

Stan, care to share the link you found with the solution for other to review?

There you go: https://support.twitter.com/articles/...

But like I said all it took was to text 21212 from my number and the messages started flowing both directions.
