I have lurked on Twisted mailing lists and related irc channels for a
rather long time, and I have largely digged in the code for curiosity
and education. So I could somehow follow its evolution. I found it
altogether very "elegant", with neat ideas and clean design. It
definitely taught me a lot about python and programming in general.
The problem with the Twisted "community" is the tendency of the
developers to quickly jump to the latest cool idea, giving the
impression that all API are under the threat of deprecation. Again,
it's very good for learning if you can track it, but maybe not so fun
if you have a lot production code to maintain.
So that would probably depend of your goals and abilities. But if you
like python and have some time to spend on it, I think it is a very
enriching thing to look at. I would definitely consider it for an
application server. Very good for quick prototyping.
