Is it true that the chance of conceiving twins is higher after a recent miscarriage?

In brief: No

I've never hear that statistic before.
Twins have a genetic susceptibility (meaning they run in families). Being older at conception (like late 30's) also increases chances. To my knowledge pregnancy after a miscarriage doesn't increase chance.
