The FIBONACCIA NUMBERS are defined:
"X[0] = 1
This gves us the following sequence of numbers:
1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610...
I do not know the meaning of a twin prime, but the Fibonacci sequence
>On a related note  is 1 the only number which is TWICE a FIBONNACCI
If you look at the defintion you will see that 1 is the only Fibonacci
>At least I managed to understand one thing  27 is definitely a prime
Now, forget EVERYTHING that you know of prime numbers. 27 is NOT a prime.
"A Prime Numbers is a number larger than 1 and only devisable by itself and 1".
Since 27 is devisable by 3 (and 9) it cannot be a prime number.
By definition we get the following sequence of primes:
2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53...
