When I was at school my town was twinned with Chartres in france. People from the Council did go and visit and vis versa, but the main purpose was the regular exchange of children in the holidays, meaning that , when not many people travelled abroad, children got to experience children from another country, though it was mostly very middle class families that took part. If some people find it useful still for that reason then that's fine, but I have got the impression that it was mainly nowadays an excuse for a jolly by councillors, in which case there doesn't seem so much use in keeping it up.
