What is Twisted?
Twisted is an event-driven framework for building networked clients and

Twisted supports many event loops for both server apps and GUI
integration on the client side, including:
- Win32 events, including GUI support
- GTK+ 2
Twisted can run protocols over TCP, SSL, UDP, multicast, Unix sockets
and subprocesses. It also includes scheduling support, threading
integration, RDBMS event loop integration and other basic requirements
for networked applications.
Also included are implementations of many protocols. In some cases this
includes complete frameworks providing facilities on top of the base

- SOAP server framework
- NNTP and complete NNTP server framework
- SOCKSv4 (server only)
