WARNING - My account got hacked and incurred charges
I joined through MBI-Probiller and just noticed several charges for Twisty's cams. I didn't sign up for that nor did I use it. I contacted MBI-Probiller first and they were useless. They actually went through their usual stuff about why I should remain a member even after I explained that I wasn't a member and my account was hacked.
Exercise care and keep an eye on your account!
The site owners were helpful and had the fraudulent account closed and the charges reversed but the biller's support was absurd.
I contacted customer support to ask why the thumbnails for older sets didn't match the set. I was told this was because they are eliminating zip downloads for older sets - 2010 and older. I don't see why that would affect the thumbnails and customer service had no explanation. However, a lot of the older sets do not have ZIPs. From what I gather I expect the zips are in the process of being removed.
Customer service is run by a third-party and has very little information about what's going on on the site itself.
I sent a message to their feedback address and haven't received a reply.
As you navigate backwards in time you will eventually get to the point where the thumbnails no longer match the photo sets! I've seen this a number of times, but the following example seems to be repeatable:
1. Go to the models page and select Nicole Graves (She has lots of sets)
2. Go to page 6 -- all the thumbnails should match
3. Go to page 7 -- starting about half way down the page (Nov 2012) you should see thumbnails of other models, but when you open the set it will be Nicole.
I bit on the $10 per month offer and man am I regretting it. I haven't been here in a few years and boy have things changed (for the worse) under the new management.
Everything is now housed under the twistysnetwork portal. You can select a site and choose pics or vids or both to view. Sh*t immediately goes south after that. The page display only allows for 20 scenes. After that you can only advance 2 pages at a time (big problem with a site this large). Say you're on page 24 and you can click on a scene. After you're done you click the "back" button on your browser; PRESTO, you automatically get taken back to page one (a problem with a Flash driven sites with no internal site "back" and "forward" buttons). Now you get to keep on clicking two pages at a time to get back to the page you were on and repeat ad infinitum, ad nauseum. If you were screening under just pics or just vids it forgets that too. If you were on a particular subsite of Twistys sometimes it forgets that too.
Using the advanced navigation doesn't fix the problem and neither does switching browsers. The url specs in the browser only show that you're on a single page no matter what internal page you might be on so you can't manually override the "back to square one" problem either.
Postscript: The next day I finally figured a work around, you have to right click on a scene and open in a new tab (duh me). Still, why should I have to do this? It doesn't help that their regular search engine is crappola either. The inability to page jump on a site with so much content is still a pain.
They are running a promo for $10! (watch out for the cross-check) I just re-joined so I haven't seen much, but so far it looks about the same as it did in 2012 with more content. They still don't display sets on one page. Videos are 720p max and images are 3000 across max. Many very (too) familiar models here. Very easy to download zips. A lot of advertising...
For $10 I don't know how you can go wrong! (Read my old review.)
As of today Twistys has reduced it's update schedule from what was once 3 photo sets and 2 videos a day only 6 months ago to only 1 photo set and 1 video a day. The reason? A major decline in memberships (income) due to a major decline in quality of new content over the last 3 months. Now that's all they can afford.
Twistys still has a lot of great historical content, but new content is rapidly becoming mostly 2nd rate stuff you'd find on free sites AND now there's less of it. They also censor most negative comments. The new content manager is on Twitter and acts like he doesn't care about the site and it shows. Of course the VP doesn't give him much funding to work with anymore either.
The MindGeeks (Twistys parent company) VP decided to screw over the runner up of the Treat of the Year contest and make the 5th place finisher runner up because they want to completely change Twistys into just another blah boy/girl site.
They've already shrunk updates from 3 photo sets and 2 videos a day down to 2 and 1 and the quality seems to be dropping off. They still advertise 3 and 2 updates, so they are engaging in illegal false advertising and have done so for a couple months now.
If you're thinking of joining Twistys for hot models in glamor style solo and girl/girl shoots, well that may only be historical content going forward. The slimeball VP who is now in charge is determined to change the site into generic boy/girl site so don't expect a lot of new traditional Twistys content going forward. These slimeballs also run Brazzers and other sites and have ZERO respect for customers, models and everyone who works for them.
Twistys, (but soon to be not as we currently know it?)
Well it would appear that Mindgeek has decided to make some (dodgy) moves with Twistys.
This all started with the leaking of the TOTY winners followed by the revelation that the runner up was not going on the TOTY trip (replaced by one of the other contestants) as in previous years (and the further developments that this had been mandated by parent company management).
This all caused an uproar on the forums which then resulted in the link to the forums being taken away from the members site. Since this has happened, the manager of the site who took over in the running from Shap after it sold has left (fired?).
This is all addition to the various site malarky that has occured recently:
- the drop in updates (yet they still advertise 3 galleries and 2 videos a day)
- the removal of advance search
- the replacement of their entire photo retouching team
There are rumours that they will no longer be shooting solo-only models. Shap has even popped up on the forums wondering what the hell is going on...
I joined here on a whim, due to the very good TBP price. It's nothing revolutionary, but it's a solid site with lots of content - my review to follow. But for such a big, high-profile site, the members area is a little disappointing. Page loads are slow and there are frequent errors when loading pages (sometimes have to load 2-3 times to get a page to work).
As noted in a recent review, the advanced search - which is essential for a site of this size - is AWOL, so just paging through the models is the best way to browse. And although you can add photographers as favourites, there doesn't seem to be a way to click through and see all their material.
Granted it's a bit churlish to complain for the price! But a site like this should be more on top of this stuff...
I generally research before I join a site, so I know what I'm getting into. So I knew before joining Twistys that I was going to a site that is primarily a photo and solo site with some hardcore videos thrown in as well. And for the most part that's been true. But I must admit that I was really pleasantly surprised when I started looking at their older video content and started finding hardcore videos that have to be from around the start of the last decade (technically, these scenes were probably made earlier than the earliest updates to the site). It has honestly been the best thing about my membership so far, since I'm not really much of a picture guy.
