    You swirl by putting a finger , a spoon, a stick etc INTO something (e.g. a liquid, a bowl of small edible things etc)

    But you twirl by holding something rigid and turning it round (a stick in your hand, a globe on a base, or even hair around your finger). Often repeatedly...

    Move in a twisting or spiraling pattern: "the smoke was swirling around him".


    Spin quickly and lightly around, esp. repeatedly.



    A quantity of something moving in such a pattern


    An act of spinning: "Kate did a twirl".
