The higher twist corrections refer to a certain class of contributions to hard processes in strong interactions that are suppressed by a power of the hard scale. This is a very broad field of research which is becoming more and more important as the accuracy of the available experimental data increases. I give an overview of some relevant basic theory concepts and technical developments, and briefly discuss a few phenomenological applications.
