I just had my wife hold the opposite ends while I twisted them aprox 3 times per foot..No big deal..If your off a bit I wouldn't fret over it...Works very well...

Thorman- Not so worried about actually doing it, as i am getting the right amount of twists in (within the quoted range). Could NEVER get the other half to hold wires while I twisted them. I have a vise and it doesn't complain. ;-) I will say, however, that it is a bit of a challenge to get all the twists all the same the length. I'm hoping that a variable twist length isn't a problem.
Elizabeth- That's what I thought it meant be really wasn't sure. I think that when Paul makes these recommendation he should be more clear about what is meant. I can't be the only one that is uncertain about the meaning of a "full twist".
I wouldn't fret the details. I crossed mine over very loosely so if I didn't like it, it would be easy to go back to straight wire without having to unbend the kinks. I noticed a slight increase in highs, nothing huge. I assume more twists will result in more high detail, but I feel this cable has enough as is. YMMV. Biggest difference for me is when they are twisted they don't make any noise when you move them around. When they are to seperate wires, they tend to clang against each other if you know what I mean.
