In brief: Yes
Breast milk supplies will increase to meet demand so don't worry about this.
Women with twins or even tripplets who wish to exclusively breast feed can and do nurse all the time.

In brief: Yes
If a mom stays healthy, relaxed, and confident that she will make enough milk, she should do just fine.
Twins can be breastfed or bottle fed at the same time, or fed individually. If the twins demand more breastmilk than mom makes, then formula can be given after breastfeeding.

In brief: Yes
Every mom and every baby (or babies!) is/are a unique situation or situation pairing (or tripling!) many moms of twins will be able to breastfeed both twins just fine with the milf supply matching the demand.
But, as with every mom and baby, situations may require additional support or knowledge. Talking with your pediatrician, obstetrician, and/or breastfeeding consultant is highly recommended.

In brief: Yes
You can do it if you are motivated and healthy! your body will adapt to produce sufficient breast milk depending on how much feeding is necessary.
Even though you are feeding two, your body can be prepared to feed two. That means you need to be taking good care of yourself (eating well, taking your prenatal vitamins, remaining in good health) and staying well hydrated (drinking lots of water).
