Check out information at this site for how to pick up stitches. [www.knittinghelp.com]

When instructions say to work the stitches twisted, what they usually mean is to work the stitches in such a way that the base of the stitch gets twisted. Normally your stitches will have an open base but sometimes a pattern calls for you to twist the base. This could be to add texture, or to tighten up the stitch, which is my guess for the instructions in your pattern.
