For windows, py2exe is the de facto standard and it works fine with Twisted.
There are similar scripts for the other platforms but I'm not familiar
with them, I understand py2app is the standard for OS X.
Note that OS X and pretty much every version of linux ship with
Python, you might re-think your need to distribute a binary and
instead just use a distutils install.
