Twist is a goofy person with a very wild imagination. His favorite catchphrase is "Sweet" and his favorite colors are blue and yellow. He wears a yellow hood, with a blue shirt beneath it, black jeans and blue and white sneakers. On the pocket of his hood he has his DJ symbol. His pajamas are striped with light blue, dark blue, and white. With it he wears moose slippers. Twist has a very odd habit of wearing his real clothes underneath his pajamas.
Twist has a knack for thinking up very imaginative ideas that usually start with, "Wouldn't it be cool if...". Marina always agrees that his ideas would be cool but decides to use a real way of achieving whatever it is they need to. This usually ends with Twist saying, "Sure, if you want to do it the easy way." Sometimes he agrees with Marina's suggestions. In "Bubble Blast" his the rest of the band actually agrees with his idea. In "Glow For It" he puts to action one of his ideas and goes into space to grab the perfect ornament for the night time festival. Twist has never been camping until his friends took him in "Camping With The Stars". Since it was his first time, he bought many electrical appliances. After learning he couldn't use them outdoors he enjoyed himself with his friends and accoustic instruments.
Besides being a deejay Twist is a very talented rapper and beatboxer. He can rhyme any word and, as seen in "Rhyme Time", makes his own up when there is no real word to rhyme. In "Band Together", after his One Man Band falls apart, Twist discovers that his favorite instrument is himself. He owns a bounce house in "Bounce The House" and a ladder that come out of a, seemingly magical, metal toolbox. He is a talented magician in "Hocus Pocus" and seems to be very fond of Kiki's voice, as he wished to keep it a little longer, after his magic switched thier voices around. He also owns a skateboard that he used in "Smoothies to Go-Go" and can be seen in his room by his shelf. He has a knack for getting stuck in things; buckets, garbage cans, and other things. Though he loves to push buttons, he has a habit of delaying the button being pressed. This usually causes the rest of the band to tell him to "Push the button already". Many things usually fall apart when he attempts them but his friends are always there to back him up.
