I don't see why it wouldn't work to have the narrator refer to the character simply as "the twin" while everyone else referred to the character by name.

Because it would sound distancing, and give a certain tone that the author might not want. To me it very much does make a difference whether the narrative voice uses character names or non-name designations when telling the story.
