Are 2 twin beds put together the same size as a king?

I thought I heard somewhere that 2 twin beds put together are the same size as a king.

Yes the King is longer than a twin. The box spring for a King matress are 2 twin beds

I thought that 2 twin beds equal a Queen, not a king. A king seems MUCH bigger than 2 twin beds.

Two twins can't equal a King because normal twin beds are too short (they are the same length as a full/double). The width might be right but not the length.

We have a King and I can tell you that it's the same width as two twins, but the length is longer.

When my dh and I first married we put two twin sized beds and box springs together with a king size mattress (can you guess we were poor and accepting all used furniture anyone was discarding? LOL).
The king sized mattress did fit on those beds perfectly.

a twin mattress is 39 inches by 75 inches
a king mattress is 78 inches by 80 inches

putting two twins together is 5 inches short

We have a regular King (as opposed to a California King) bed, and our box spring is 2 twin box springs, which are the same size as the King mattress.

Our bedroom is upstairs, and a King size box spring (with no ability to bend it because of the wooden frame) would have never gone up our stairwell. The King mattress barely fit...the guys had to bend it and strap it to hold it bent to get it up the stairs.

That's what I have, but I'm pretty sure the "twin" box springs are actually about 5 inches longer than actual twin box springs.

A queen is wider and a king is longer.

You must have had extra long twin box springs or the mattress would have been longer.
