    Given the setup, B and C stay within their inertial frames, and A will experience acceleration to do the moving from A to B ... so A is in multiple frames, breaking the symmetry. See: twins...

    Yeah, with "instant acceleration" that'll happen! (Non-physical). The "time gap" is (I think) best thought of in the scenario with multiple observers who don't ever accelerate but just synchronise...

    (Sorry, quote button not working for me). Jilan #4, it's not so much the acceleration that resolves the paradox, but that one twin stays in one inertial frame the whole time, and the other is in...

    You can do such experiments with observers that pass each other and synchronise clocks at cross-over. Thus no acceleration of an observer, but you still get the "instant" change of frame.
