I am not sure if you can actually play it twice as fast.....other than the timeline you started with......but try this.....

go to animation preferences......little button next to the little key bottom right hand corner of your screen......and change the playback speed to twice (48fps) your changes and see if that helps.......I cannot see if this works because I have no animations to test it on

Let me know

I'm not sure about having it do so automatically, but if you select all, all of your keys will appear in the timeline. Click at the beginning and drag selecting all of your keys. At the beginning, middle, and end of your key selection are arrows that you can use to compress your keys. However, it's not automatic, so you'd have to eye it to get it to 50%. Using the Graph Editor would help, probably.
