If Twisted is not a Single Circle 1/4 then how do I do the call?

The 'twist' should be done during the Pass Thru or Pull By or slightly before. Do not try to 'twist' after the Pass Thru or Pull By since this is awkward and disorientating.

From Facing Dancers: a Twisted Right Pull By is danced as follows: Shake right-hands; start to do a Single Circle 1/4 using only one hand, then complete the Pull By while finishing the 90° turn. This should be danced as one continuous smooth movement.

From Facing Dancers: a Twisted Pass Thru is danced as follows: As one movement and using no hands, do a Touch 1/4 and Step Thru.
