Hi, I'm Ken and I will be glad to help with your question. Thanks for using
Twisting is not good and may have pulled a wire loose from its connection. Hopefully this occurred in the box supporting the fixture. If so, the canopy, the part at the top of the chain can be dropped where you could possibly find the loose connection. Start with that. If a loose connection is not found, I would temporarily replace the dimmer with a standard toggle switch and test the fixture. If not successful the loose connection could be inside the fixture in which case it would have to be removed and taken apart to find.
