It is indeed true that Twitter can't send SMS in countries with a long code. Looks like there's an oversight in this system so that it's allowing SMS verification to be used even though it should require confirmation via incoming SMS. Twitter provides instructions at https://support.twitter.com/articles/20170409, but unfortunately those aren't of much use. ...
I had a similar issue and instead of receiving texts, I switched over to the Google Authenticator App on my phone (also works with other services besides Google, like GitHub for example). You should keep the backup codes anyway—they come in handy if you don't have your phone with you, you lose it, or your battery dies etc.

(You don't wanna get into the coding part unless you're a programmer). It is the same with Facebook, Google+ ...
Do not change your password first. Go into the security settings Click the gear in the top right. Select Settings. Click the Accounts tab. In the "Grant access to your account" section, click delete on any account you want to remove. If you do have someone tagging along, when you change the password, they come with you. If you delete the "tag - along", ...
I was able to work around this by turning on 2-step verification, setting up app passwords, then turning 2-step verification back off. When you turn it off, it asks if you want to clear verification data. I said no; I don't know whether that matters.
