Those small twins are all known (see list at download or the summary-pages).

He was asking of higher n-levels say n~500000 for any prime of the form k*2^n-1.
Test those k/n-pairs if the number k*2^n+1 is prime, too! The Riesel-side (-1) is known to be prime for many values here but none has ever tested the '+1'-side!
OTOH the chance for finding a new twin by testing only these primes is very low.
