You just have to call wx.CallAfter, it will let you call any function
inside the wx thread. I've put an example of this use online:

It may be better, by the way, to run wx in the main thread and Twisted
in the secondary thread. Some toolkits supported by wx may not like the
fact that they aren't called from the main thread - I'm not sure such a
limitation exists but I'm not sure of the contrary either. Twisted,
OTOH, does not seem to care at all.
