    根據 Merriam-Webster's Dictionary of Synonyms 一書的解釋, spin 和 twirl, 同 turn, revolve, rotate, gyrate, circle, whirl, wheel, eddy, swirl, pirouette 一般, 泛指繞著圈子移動, 或是使某物繞著圈子移動. Spin implies rapid sustained rotation on an inner axis or fast circling around an exterior point (he who but ventures into the outer circle of the whirlpool is spinning, ere he has time for thought, in its dizzy vortex -- Bayard Taylor). Twirl can add to the ideas of spin those of dexterity, lightness, or easy grace (this ... book ... I toss i' the air, and catch again, and twirl about -- Borwning)spin 意指繞著內軸做快速持續的轉動, 或是對外部某一點做快速的繞圈; twirl 則是 spin 的物體具有靈巧, 輕盈, 優雅的特點.

    這是我個人的感覺囉... 所以如果其他大大有更詳細的解釋,你就一併參考他們的答案。

    "twirl"就像是一個人在原地轉圈圈,或像是體操選手用彩帶轉成一圈一圈那樣。那些一圈一圈感覺上比較不重疊,轉的速度比較慢一些。

    "spin"就像是洗衣機的滾筒在轉,有固定的轉速或軌道。
