Abstract: The numbers $ 2N = 2(2)1000000$ are checked to determine if they can be written as the sum of two twin primes. Thirty-three numbers are found that cannot be so represented; they are all less than 5000. The largest number in the range $ 2N = 2(2)500000$ that can be written as the sum of two twin primes in only one way is $ 2N = 24098$.
