twm isn't a desktop environment, just a window manager, and it doesn't
come up with a fancy startup script.  You just run it with a DISPLAY
set and it will manage that display.

Typically you just stick "twm" at the end of your .xinitrc and then
start x11 via startx, if you're not using a display manager.
