If you are using an *buntu or Debian based system type: sudo apt-get install python-twisted that will add what you need.

Perhaps you missed this:
If you wish to build and install the latest Twisted by-hand on Ubuntu ensure that you have the 'python-dev' and 'build-essentials' packages installed.
Try the above method first.
