i am pretty sure that twerski is a very chasidush name/family- now it is possible that being that i am non chasidush i could be wrong.

You're right, it's the lastname of the founder of a huge Chassidic family of Rebbes with many offshoots.

The famous Twerskys of today are descendants of this family.

@Chaim'l
I was thinking the same thing...
The Twersky family is indeed from the Tchernobyl dynasty and many rebbes come from that family most notably the Skver Rebbe who's last name is Twersky. However Chaim'l's(!) point stands, that nowadays many Twerskys are not "as chasiddish as it gets"

Without getting too personal, that's the gist of it....

Do you mean typical or are you calling Chassidishe people atypical?

I'm looking a long time for the definition of "regular orthodox jew", since everyone claims to be that. I thing that mashiach himself will let us know, we will see how he's dressed. 

You're correct. It's all relative. Poor choice of words on my part.

What I meant to imply was: I don't look like a Satmar Chasid even though it's in my blood.
