You didn't give a long enough example to be certain, but that looks like
multiprocessing.Process syntax.  The multiprocessing module does not
work reliably with Twisted.  Neither does the subprocess module.

You should use the equivalent Twisted process functionality, shown at

There's also https://launchpad.net/ampoule, but for the small example
you show, the basic Twisted process stuff should be fine.
