My understanding is that the service (in this case, twitter) pays the phone companies for a continuously updated database of real, legitimate cellphone numbers.  So twitter should make you use a cell # tied to your account and occasionally verify it with you.  That should prevent new bots from signing up, unless they can afford to have a real cell # for every bot account.

 

I've never heard of it done this way, even for services whose business IS multifactor authentication (e.g. Duo). Do you have any resources on that?

Not really. But I use at least a half dozen services for work and personal that have the 2-part verification. I recently bought an extra laptop and all the services I regularly used, when logging in with the new machine, wanted to ding my cell with text. Worked fine.

It’s not that the thousands of followers do anything but give you followers so you are more attractive to real people following you. Basic psychology.
