If for some reason you need to transmit messages which include \r\n or
\n, then you can easily change the delimiter in your protocol to e.g.
"\x04" (EOT, End Of Transmission).

from twisted.protocols import basic
class MyLineReceiverProtocol(basic.LineReceiver):
    delimiter = "\x04"

Remember to perform this modification both clientside and serverside.

More info:

There's also LineOnlyReceiver: "A protocol that receives only lines.
This is purely a speed optimisation over LineReceiver, for the cases
that raw mode is known to be unnecessary."
