Good stuff Serge,
Thanks for saving me the hassle. That would have definitely taken me more than a month to find. Kudos to you sir. But I think as difficult as it was, it is still a much smaller k than one would have expected for a 10k dd+ (Or is it 13k dd+) twin prime pair if the distribution was unbiased. I will leave it to Mr. Greathouse to do the probability calculation. It must be about square of the probability getting a single prime of the size. Last fiddled with by a1call on 20191216 at 04:09

I do not have editing privileges. what is the process of completing the list? Thanks in advance.

For a price of $50 on aws I found this pair, too:
2332724220*(2^862431)±1 are prime

Ok I will fill in the k value for 21701, and will do a light doublecheck and will submit next week

I am following this thread but have not had the time to properly post to it.
The minimal k.6 for 21701 is 23128315.6.M21701 +/1 Kudos to Batalov for the 25k dd+ solution. Last fiddled with by a1call on 20191221 at 20:12

To post a more complete post for M21701:
23128315.6.M21701 +/ 1 are minimal TwinPrimes for M21701 with 6541 dd each. Found using PariGP & PFGW. ETA: 23128315*6*(2^217011)+1 23128315*6*(2^217011)1 Last fiddled with by a1call on 20191222 at 02:32

I have a question for you: i tried to create a Windows server instance on GoogleCompute with 96 cores, but I keep getting the message that there is a quota limit of 24 cores for that region. When I check the availability for the region it states that up to 96 cores should be available with the skylake. How do I setup a Windows instance with 96 cores? Thank you in advance for your insight.

I will setup a run for the next MersennePrime in the queue: M110503. I do not expect a timely resolution. BTW if anyone wants to find Twins for M216091, please be my guest. there are no TwinPrimes for it below 1241000.6.M216091.
