Axiom was designed from the ground up as a Twisted-friendly database.  You can store Twisted service objects in axiom databases, and run axiom databases as twisted servers using the 'axiomatic start' command.

If you're writing a blog/cms type thing, you should probably look at this brief tutorial for an example of how such things get built with axiom:


(mantissa is axiom+nevow+athena+glue, basically)

Other database integration tools may be more database-y (and, for example, give you a choice of database backend, which axiom does not currently do) but you are unlikely to find one twistier than axiom ;).
