heyyy, as nasty as it may be, i totally do the same thing!! i've kinda always had habits like that, nail biting, skin picking, hair pulling, split end picking, i could go on, so i think the twisting is just an extension of that. i thought you were gonna say the old snap a rubber band thing lol, which i've tried to no avail. i also have a spinning ring on my thumb, which is fine to fidget with but doesn't help at all with the twisting. i have tons of bracelets that i wear all the time and fidget with constantly, doesn't make a difference. i just can't stop. it's impossible. i'm destined to lose the ends of my dreads every few months for the rest of my life!! (not funny at all)
i have to try some things to keep my hands busy too, as i have a bad habit of picking the skin near the side of my thumb nails (nasty i know). I've picked at my thumbs for so long i have desensitized the area and don't even feel myself doing it most of the time. One thing you could try is to keep something on your wrist like an elastic band or something and play with that when you find yourself twisting. Alternatively you could turn a ring over so the gem is facing the palm of your hand and play with that? Oh and HHIII!
