i do not mean to start an argument! pre-twisting is the only way you can know what kind of joint you have under your wirenut!

I disagree. A properly installed wire but will look the same after splicing as a pre-twisted connection.

Twisting the night away

I'm a pre-twister. I want to see the connection before I cap it. Not looking to activate any arguing.
