Well, the answer is relatively simple. Webware is, as the name already 
suggests - a web application server with some components. This means it is 
used in WEB applications. Twisted in contrary can be used for web 
applications, but I think a lot of people use it as the server side of a 
non-web application (like I do). Twisted incorporates way more protocols than 
webware does - actually does webware support anything else than http(s) ?
For example my app doesn't use the internet.web part of twisted at all. I just 
use the perspective broker for accessing remote objects - a capability I 
can't find in webware.
You probably might want to compare webware with Zope - I think those two are
