(Edit: I’ve been told you can now use your phone number for several Twitter accounts, which I guess is one step in the right direction. Although I’d prefer them not pressuring people to give phone numbers at all 🙃)

And if you get a new sim card, google your number before using it 🙃

It could be the Whatsapp ID of a sex worker, a restaurant, a doctor, or anyone who needs to share their number online.

Show thread

In the meantime, if you create an app, a platform, or whatever piece of tech that requires user IDs, please don't use phone numbers.

Show thread

So we'll keep playing phone-number-roulette because like this nobody will need to change.

Until most phone numbers are tied to accounts and the issue grows so much that states or other legislators will finally (hopefully) be pushed to create and enforce laws to solve the issue

Show thread

And tech companies? They act like the world should adapt to them and their need to track people.

Like there are no other solutions.

They believe in it: If they keep pushing for their approach to user IDs the world will shape itself around them - as it always seems to do.

Show thread

The (state) institutions in charge don't show any interest in solving the issue either. The system has always worked as it was, and they're in the cosy position where they don't have to deal with angry customers.

So, why change?

Show thread

Phone carriers don't care about the issue. Specific (state) institutions are responsible for releasing the numbers so they can be given to customers. A number that is officially released is good for use, and the rest it not their problem to solve.

Show thread

But people change numbers. Because they move, because their needs evolve, because people die and others reach the age where you get a phone.

More and more of the new phone numbers people get will already be linked to several accounts. And it's always a hassle for the user.

Show thread

From a tech company perspective, phone numbers are precious data, percieved as unique identifiers that allow to track people accross services and allow to make sure there's probably a real person behind the account.

They'll do anything to get your phone number.
