Actually I used needle nose to twist the exposed ends together(which also in turn twisted the wires some) then added the wire nut until it was tight (without allowing the wires to twist) then once tight just kept twisting it by hand for a little bit more allowing the wires to follow.

I only added one 14-3 wire and a second switch to the mix all of the other wires were original from the home builder. I tried to follow his length and thought twisting them would save me some space in the box since the fan speed switch is rather big and was hard to fit into the box with all those other wires laying around.
