Twisted comprises both lower and higher levels.  E.g., see
and I quote:

Publish a Web Site

The twisted.web webserver is a scalable, small-footprint web server that's
easy to configure. It's efficient enough to serve a high-traffic website,
completely dynamic and reconfigureable on the fly, and simple enough to
configure that you can have it set up and running in just minutes after
you've downloaded it.
