As it says, "twit" originally meant a mild rebuke, then the person who given to twitting, and finally it means a silly person. "Twat", as the article says, means the vagina, and is the same as using the "c" word. It's had that meaning for centuries and seems only to have been used interchangeably for "twit" in the last few decades, probably through ignorance.
