5. Your Tweet view must be set on public. 6. Twitter will need to be able to confirm your email address and phone number. This is to ensure that it is a human making application.
7. Lastly, Twitter demands a short write up of 500 characters stating why you want your account to be verified. Twitter will give you a yes or no reply two days after submission.
