I don't have any experience with it, but I've heard people on dreadlockssite say that twisting can cause traction alopecia. This would be consistent with my understanding of alopecia causes as a licensed cosmetologist in the state of Washington. The basic concept is that hair that is continually under tensile stress will damage the papilla nerve in hair follicle, and eventually lead to death of the nerve causing the hair to cease to grow. It is commonly seen with people who wear their hair in tight braids for years; the effect is like a slowly dissolving and receding hairline. There are a number of videos on YouTube of people claiming bald patches caused by twisting their locks.

As for palm rolling, I also don't have any experience with it. The natural/neglect dread enthusiasts I've heard from on the subject claim that it does nothing to promote dread tightening or maturation, so it may not be of any help. But I don't know of any negative affects of this technique so you may not risk anything by experimenting if you are so inclined.

I hope I've been somewhat helpful at least to answering your questions. It sounds like you are enjoying your hair which is probably the most important thing and will be of the most help as your hair continues to change and evolve.

Take care✌

Introduction
We are a forum site whose goal is to try to make sure everyone gets the journey that is best for them. We promote healthy and natural locks. We discuss everything Dreadlocks, the answers to your questions are here. We promote healthy and natural dreadlocks without the use of products like wax. We see dreadlocks as a journey and lifestyle rather than just a style of hair. Our goal is to try to make sure everyone gets the journey that is best for them, even if it is using wax. 
We do experiments and are always looking for the truth behind the myth, and there are a lot of dreadlock myths out there.

We have recipes for healthy natural shampoo, and we have links to online stores that some of our members own. 
They make the products themselves.
Tams
Soaps
beads
Clothing
Jewelery

We don't actually sell anything ourselves but we support these people's stores.
