Of course the World Trade Center. It were the best skyscrapers in the world in my opinion, only they were my favourite skyscrapers.

I find the WTC being a sympathy vote. Before they were attacked most people didn't really like them much as they were for the most part, just boxes.

So are the emirates towers counted? Because they're not exactly twins since one is higher than the other.

Yes, they're counted. They might not be the same height, but they are clearly still "twins".

Methinks we have a winner :p
If the IFC counts as twins but how about The World Financial Centre in NY. But they're more quadriplets



Honestly, I don't consider both as twins because the design of 1-IFC is different from 2-IFC. The Lippo Centre is still the best to represent the best twin tower from HK
