    I had an API running fine two years ago for a university course I teach. It seems however no longer to be running now that I am teaching the course again, although the hashtag is the same. The problem I have now is that I seemed not to be able to use the old Twitter API authorisation, so I tried to create another one, and twitter requires you to put in a mobile phone to text an authorisation code. I don’t have a mobile phone though.
    any ways round this?

    All best,



    Thanks for the tip Francesca
