Burton's "Twin like" = directional twin?

I know there is true twin shape for snowboards... then there is directional twin which is pretty much twin shaped but has a head and a tail slightly different..... but what is "twin like" that is advertised on burton boards ?

Pretty sure it's a twin shape and directional flex

EDIT: my apologies, BA is always there to correct me though.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Slightly wider nose than tail but twin flex. You're talking like maybe 3 to 5mm's max different not enough for the naked eye to really catch.
