    What have I done to the paper 2

    Hello,

    Have I "rolled up the paper", and I am holding it in my hand now?

    Thanks.

    "Roll up" is the most appropriate one, and I'm considering that "twist" is appropriate either.

    You are wrong on both counts. Yourjones has "rolled up" the paper and is holding it in his hand. He has not twisted the paper.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
