%F a(n) = A036061(n) - 2.

%F a(n) = A036062(n) - A113274(n).

%e The smallest twin prime pair is 3, 5, then 5, 7 so a(1) = 3; the following pair is 11, 13 so a(2) = 5 because 11 - 5 = 6 > 5 - 3 = 2; the following pair is 17, 19: since 17 - 11 = 6 = 11 - 5 nothing happens; the following pair is 29, 31 so a(3)= 17 because 29 - 17 = 12 > 11 - 5 = 6.

%t NextLowerTwinPrim[n_] := Block[{k = n + 2}, While[ !PrimeQ[k] || !PrimeQ[k + 2], k++ ]; k]; p = 3; r = 0; t = {3}; Do[q = NextLowerTwinPrim[p]; If[q > r + p, AppendTo[t, p]; r = q - p]; p = q, {n, 10^9}] (* _Robert G. Wilson v_ *)
