> Asyncio in python is a better answer for Python. But twisted is not asyncio.

To my way of thinking about these things, this is plainly a non-sequitur. Twisted and asyncio don't do, or even try to do, the same things.

The only reason that they are comparable is because, for years, Python lacked adequate primitives for expressing concurrency. Thus, Twisted, and its event loop (the reactor), handle this.

And it's true that the reactor may eventually be replaced by async IO. However, the core of what Twisted does (handle network (and other I/O) traffic in an elegant, adaptive, concurrent way) is not something that asyncio is designed to replicate.
