Hi All,

The "twist" in the radio waves is "Orbital Angular Momentum".
If you're interested in a more technical explanation of this phenomenon, take a look at the following document to be published in the IEEE  Transactions on Antennas and Propagation:

The paper is a little hard to follow with all it's equations. The conclusion  is that using Orbital Angular Momentum provides no more bandwidth than using MIMO (Multiple in multiple out) techniques.
