[tor-talk] A little more hostility towards Tor from Twitter

Some months ago Twitter users reported the service asking them to
provide a cell phone number when logging in to web interface from Tor. [1]

Now, Twitter won't allow me to post, retweet, favourite, or send a DM
via web interface if used from Tor (even though I submit a phone number
and log in successfully):

âYour account may not be allowed to perform this action. Please refresh
the page and try again.â

which could at least pretend to be the most polite fuck you in internet
history but which probably is merely an unintentional side-effect of
carelessly designed anti-spam policy.

I still can use Twitter from clearnet web interface, or from a torrified
mobile client (AndStatus).

So it goes.
