We give a general treatment of twist-three effects in two-photon reactions. We address the issue of the gauge invariance of the Compton amplitude in generalized Bjorken kinematics and relations of twist-three 'transverse' skewed parton distributions to twist-two ones and interaction dependent three-particle correlation functions. Finally, we discuss leading order evolution of twist-three functions and their impact on the deeply virtual Compton scattering.
