Hello Twitter Support,
Trust this email finds you well.
My account is currently locked (@ Twitter Handle). I tried verifying my account via Phone Call, when i click “Call me” action bar, it keeps giving me this error ” Sorry, the request failed. Please try again later”
I think there is an issue with the callback service, kindly look into it and unlock my account.
My number: “Your Mobile number”
Attached is a screenshot of the error message. “Attach screenshots of the error message”
3. Logout from Twitter
Now log out your account from every device you are logged into.
Wait for 5-7 days from the day you replied Twitter Support.
5. Login again
Now login your account from a device or a web browser you have not used to access your account before.
This is what i did, and when i click on the “Call Me” after 7 days, the call went through, and now i have my account back.
I sincerely hope this works for you. Good Luck.
