Following Twitter‘s announcement on expanding reporting process in case of safety concerns, new details emerge on HOW it will track down any offenders.
After a report occurs, Twitter will ask users in question to verify their email or phone number. While Twitter does not ask for a phone number when a new account is created, in case of repeated harassments reports occur, users are asked to verify their details. If their email or phone number exists on the list of banned accounts, then they could face permanent ban from the service.
