Undoubtely that, in connection with Special Relativity, one of the most disputed subjects was (and still remaining) the so-called the Twin Paradox.
It is notable the fact that, during the last decades, the disputes regarding the Twin Paradox were diminished and disimulated owing to the common solution (CS), which seems to be accredited with a great and unimpeded popularity.
In the end we shall conclude that the existence of the alluded asymptotic situations invalidate the CS and restores the Twin Paradox as a real (non-apparent, non-fictitious) and open problem which requires further investigations.
This obvious disagreement between the relativistic formula (3) and the supposed relations (4) and (5) represents just the Twin Paradox.
Consequently CS inferes the conclusion: the Twin Paradox is nothing but a purely and apparent fictitious problem.
But now we have to notify the fact that CS does not approach any discussion on the comparative importance (significance) in the Twin Paradox problem of the respective nonuniform and uniform motions.
Therefore the respective asymmetry cannot be considered a reliable proof in the resolving of the Twin Paradox.
The respecrtive existence invalidate the CS which must be abandoned as a wrong and unreliable approach of the Twin Paradox.
