COMMENTS

One can call such pairs {n, n+2} mutually (or amicably) step 2 refactorable numbers.
All terms are even.
Proof. Let us suppose n is odd. Then so is n+2 and the number of their divisors has to be odd, which implies they are squares (see the proof in A268066). Since the separation between closest squares is 2n+1, it is always greater than 2, except for n=0, when it is 1.
Contains 48 + 160*k if 3 + 10*k and 5 + 16*k are prime. Dickson's conjecture implies that there are infinitely many of these.  Robert Israel, May 09 2016

EXAMPLE

4 is a term because its number of divisors (3) divides 6=4+2 and the number of divisors of 6 (4) divides 4.
