The first one is a Left twist, the other is a Right Twist and there's videos at you tube for them. But if you just follow the directions step by step you'll get them, it just takes some practice which you could do with some scrap yarn to get used to it.
I don't like doing these as decs and knit the other stitch, they're a lot more defined if you do them like a mini cable. For the R twist, knit into the the 2nd st from the front of the needle, then into the first stitch. The L twist is knit into the 2nd st from behind the needle, then into the first stitch.
