Is Twisted Safe to Use?
Whenever installing third-party addons that are not in the Official Kodi Repository, it‘s smart to do some due diligence first.
I always recommend scanning the repository URL using VirusTotal before proceeding with the installation. This scans for anything malicious.
Here are the scan results for the Twisted repository:
VirusTotal did not find anything harmful, so we can proceed with the installation. However, I still recommend using a VPN like IPVanish for additional privacy and security when streaming from third-party addons.

Is Twisted Legal to Use?
When it comes to third-party Kodi addons, legality is a tricky subject. Technically just installing and using Twisted is completely legal. However, some of the content accessed through it may violate copyright.
The Twisted developers have not verified licensing for the streams being offered through their addon. So it‘s likely that some streams are pirated material being distributed without permission.
As the end user, it is your responsibility to avoid copyrighted content. Stick to free, public domain material that can be legally accessed. Or use a debrid service which provides content through legal streaming sites.
To stay on the safe side when using addons like Twisted, a VPN is highly recommended to keep your streaming activities private.

No matter which one you choose, using a VPN ensures anonymity and your ISP can never throttle your connection.
