getting twisted to work in python - sending data from one protocol to another

I am a newbie in python. Right now I am working on this messaging app and I would like to pass data from one protocol to another. I have been referencing to other answers provided in other similar questions by trying to add a variable storing the data from one factory then initiate another factory and write the data to it. Unfortunately it is only writing back to itself now instead of writing to another factory, and I cannot figure out why. If anyone can provide any sort of help I will really appreciate it as I have been stuck in this point for quite a while.

Here is the code
