Fix 2FA bug where Twitch says my number is already used
I have tried for quite a stretch of time to get my mobile phone number accepted by Twitch, yet still no luck, due to Twitch saying I already used my mobile number to verify an account before. That is a straight-up lie, considering I did not get my phone until 1 years ago at Christmas, and I haven't even attempted verifying with my phone number at all, until recently! I have seen another person with the same issue, January of this year, which I have linked at the bottom of this post. My theory is that someone had my phone number before, and they verified their account with it. Eventually they passed away, and their number was transferred to my phone after a 90-day period. And since they had already used my number to verify, I can't verify, even though they don't own the number anymore! That is just a theory though, and speculation gets people nowhere until action is made. So please, if someone at Twitch is reading this, do not refer me to help.twitch.tv, and actually see if the issue can be fixed directly.
