Strange that this would solve your problem, as twisted.protocol.msn is
just a compatibility wrapper around twisted.words.protocols.msn. The
error you got was to indicate that you actually didn't have words
installed so it couldn't  find twisted.words.protocols.msn.

Did you use the toplevel setup.py file from the Twisted-2.4.0.tar.bz2?
