What is Twisted? Event-driven networking engine written in Python. Twisted is an event-driven networking engine written in Python and licensed under the open source ​MIT license. Twisted runs on Python 2 and an ever growing subset also works with Python 3. Twisted also supports many common network protocols, including SMTP, POP3, IMAP, SSHv2, and DNS.

Django Channels and Twisted can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

Django Channels and Twisted are both open source tools. Django Channels with 3.94K GitHub stars and 542 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Twisted with 3.49K GitHub stars and 890 GitHub forks.
