Back to basics here, using the online "Merrian-Webster" definition of the word:

Skepticism
1: an attitude of doubt or a disposition to incredulity either in general or toward a particular object
2a : the doctrine that true knowledge or knowledge in a particular area is uncertain
2b : the method of suspended judgment, systematic doubt, or criticism characteristic of skeptics
3: doubt concerning basic religious principles (as immortality, providence, and revelation)

From the definition, it seems to me that Scepcop is applying skepticism (#1) to the video and it's contents (a particular object), by simply putting it out there for open discussion.

Has the video presented enough reliable evidence to for a reliable conclusion? No, but it has provided enough reliable evidence to be a YouTube video to provide some discussion about the information presented in that video. The video is about a set of twins and one particular personal experience that they claim to be true and accurate. Is it true and accurate? Who knows? I can't verify their claims but perhaps someone out there knows of another similar experience, and another and another. It still won't provide absolute proof of anything other than a bunch of YouTube video stories made by identical twins but it's an interesting discussion topic for an internet forum such as this.
