    hi
    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?
    thanks
    Mat

    Hi Mat,

    A student of mine alerted me to a decent work-around using Google Voice. You will still need to link your Google Voice number to a land line or mobile number that you can access to activate your Google Voice number. Instructions on how to do that are at https://support.google.com/voice/answer/150640.

    All best,
    Francesca
