Well how did you switch from Gnome to TWM? Can't you just use the same program to switch back? If for some reason you can't, stop X and create a file called .xinitrc (note the leading dot) in your home directory with the following line:

exec gnome-session

When you restart X, it should pop you back into Gnime.
