Joe and I are both in the US, Isis and Pariss are also both US citizens (also, that wouldn't explain Kvlly, who is in the top .01% of accounts in the world)

I spoke to Joe yesterday about this, yes i’m still wondering why Kelly is still not verified. I did read about trending on google or last 6 months on reputable news too. Is really tough on this one. I’m working to redesign my personal site and put some news source soon.

I wrote a tweet

hmmm, yea, interesting to see that you are below the threshold. I was able to select that category (as was Joe and Kelly), so our follower count must meet their requirements. Sometimes is amiss.

Yes must be either minimum follower count or minimum mention threshold in the region. Let’s not give up!

There's not really anything I can do at this point. Applying again on June 28 I'd be applying with the same credentials. I have no reason to apply again unless they tell me why they denied me.

I tried to apply as content creator but it didn’t meet meet the criteria. Did you try on influencer category? I guess you have submitted and now waiting for another try since they only allow every 30 days?

I did a different influencer category, because I have news mentions, but I could have also done the content creator category. None of them were blocked.

Yes, they only allow every 30 days.
