Highest Prime is also a twin prime... NOT
By coincidence, the largest known prime is also a twin prime, that is 2 larger.

No, it is not a twin prime. 2^{77232917}+1 is divisible by 3, and 2^{77232917}3 is not prime:

You are welcome to run a double check of 2^{77232917}3 or search for a factor of it above 1.22*10^{13}. The worktodo.txt for Prime95/mprime is: PRP=1,2,77232917,3 It will take 214 days depending on your CPU speed. Last fiddled with by ATH on 20180117 at 00:00

Is there a place to report on such values?
Code:
UID: manoli94/OliverPC, 2^772329173 completed P1, B1=5000000, B2=500000000, E=12, Wg4: D0001B57

twin primes
One less than a primorial is always prime number. One more than a primorial may be a twin prime. For example, primorial [5] 1= 2 . 3 . 5 = 29 and primorial [5] + 1 = 31. So primorial [ 5 ] has a so called twin two years older.

No it is not 2*3*5*7=210; 209=11*19

I ran a simpleminded Pari script to check whether p# +/ 1 was a pseudoprime for primes p up to 500. After the prime p, a  sign appears if p# 1 is a pseudoprime; a + sign appears if p# + 1 is a pseudoprime. If neither p#  1 nor p# + 1 is a pseudoprime, the word "neither" appears after p.
