Context is that protagonist is swearing. And says following sentence:

捻りもクソもねえな。

I know クソ, but I'm not sure what 捻り means here. Is this some slang or just some obvious (for Japanese) usage of literal meaning?

「捻{ひね}り(が/の)ない」

is a common expression meaning:

"boring", "plain", "witless", "uninteresting", etc.

(「捻り」 means "a twist" all by itself. The expression is not really slang though it is colloquial.)

By inserting a 「もクソも」, the expression sounds more emphatic in a vulgar and lively way.

"It's boring as hell!"
