A co-worker noticed that this arrangement doesn't work. IIt results in a broken div and the page isn't rendered properly.

   * abc %TWISTY{}%  

This works correctly (i.,e. no div problems, rendered properly)

   * abc %TWISTY{}%  abc  %ENDTWISTY%

This does what the co-worker originally had in mind (without TWiki bullets)

   <li> abc  %TWISTY{}%

reproduced in Sandbox web on twiki.org.

It is actually spec that a bullet requires indented lines to "continue" the bullet, e.g. a line that starts with a character at the beginning of the line ends the previous bullet:

   * This is a bullet
     This is line two if the first bullet
     | This is a | table |
     This is the next line, still within the same bullet.
This starts a new paragraph.

So, as long as you indent the twisty lines you should be OK.
