Related to Twisters: Tongue twisters
a machine in textile production for manufacturing twisted threads, twine, cord, string, and so forth. The basic operating part of traditional twisters is the spindle, which, in spinning, gives a twist to the thread and carries the package with the thread to be twisted. Also used for making twisted thread are spinner-twisters, which combine four production operations (spinning, doubling, twisting, and winding the thread on the bobbin).
