I talked to my own twin (KG) as well as three other sets of twins (NF and MF; JM and KM; and MPB and MMB) about their views on the ups and downs of being twins.

For the most part, the general consensus was that being a twin is mostly positive.

Despite this, there are definite negatives to being a twin.

Furthermore, all agreed that there are many annoying misconceptions about twins as well.
