No, it is not a twin prime. 277232917+1 is divisible by 3, and 277232917-3 is not prime:

 2^77232917-3 is not prime. RES64: 6F0CC152285F2E9F. Wg8: F9C5D09F,00000000

You are welcome to run a double check of 277232917-3 or search for a factor of it above 1.22*1013. The worktodo.txt for Prime95/mprime is:
PRP=1,2,77232917,-3

It will take 2-14 days depending on your CPU speed.

 2018-01-28, 21:26 #4 kruoli     "Oliver" Sep 2017 Porta Westfalica, DE 26·19 Posts Is there a place to report on such values? Code: UID: manoli94/Oliver-PC, 2^77232917-3 completed P-1, B1=5000000, B2=500000000, E=12, Wg4: D0001B57 By the way... Title of this thread and first post don't really match. (I guess everyone saw that already, I might be a bit slow on that)
 2018-04-02, 18:20 #5 hydeer   Jan 2018 3 Posts 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

Is this a new definition of "prime number" that we were previously unaware of?

 A prime number is any number that is one less than a primorial.
Seems legit to me.

 2018-04-03, 13:58 #9 Dr Sardonicus     Feb 2017 Nowhere 17CC16 Posts I ran a simple-minded 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.

Nope! It's just a new definition of the word "always".

Literally, it means "sometimes but not often"
