Here's the setup for the initial three ball cluster. The cue ball and 5 ball are frozen to each other and frozen to the rail. The 3 ball is frozen to both the cue ball and 5 ball. It's important that these are all touching.
Here, you can see the cue ball and the 3 ball are aligned to the far point of the side pocket. This is important because the 3 ball will throw to the left since you're putting right english on the cue ball.
I aim with quite a bit of elevation, but still comfortable using the pendulum stroke. I put maximum right english on the cue ball and aim towards the center of the 3 ball. Just stroke through it to juice it up good to get the spin you need to get to the corner pocket off the side rail. If the 5 ball gets there first, aim slightly more away from it. If the cue ball comes short, put more spin on it.
Here's yet another variation on Tim's Twister that I came up with.
