You can also use a protocol  that keeps message boundaries like UDP. UDP
is   reliable    and   deliver   messages   in   order    if   used   on
localhost. Otherwise,  there are protocoles like SCTP  that are reliable
and keep message boundaries. However, I think there is no support for it
in Twisted.
