What it’s like being a twin? Do they really have a connection that other siblings cannot understand? Is it awesome knowing there is someone that is linked to you, and in some cases identical looking? I interviewed two sets of twins to get insight on their experience with being a twin and what it’s like to have that bond. I also had them answer some questions about each other to test who knew who better.
