I did this crossword last week, and admit I wasn't too sure myself, apart from

Twitterboned does mean deformed hoof and

Twitter - Yak nervously

If you take E = Earth ( although Chambers doesn't give this abbreviation) and D - died ( which it does) this would leave BON - which could nob ( a 'turning' of butter) with backwards = over.

As I look at this answer - it does seem rather convoluted. But I'm sure twitter boned IS the answer.
