In most cases if the paper twists it is because something is restricting paper movement. Open the lid and look closely for staples, sticky notes,  labels. You can use a piece of stiff paper to try and floss the paper path, just be careful to not break any flags.

Mine was doing the same thing. I cleaned the rollers and it fixed the problem.
