1. Introduction

Throughout this paper, the symbols , , , and denote the ring of rational integers, the ring of -adic integers, the field of -adic rational numbers, and the completion of algebraic closure of , respectively. Let be the set of natural numbers and . Let be the normalized exponential valuation of with .

Recently, many authors have studied the symmetric properties of the -adic invariant integrals on , which gave some interesting identities for the Bernoulli and the Euler polynomials (cf. [3, 6, 7, 13, 14, 2027]). The authors of this paper have established various identities by the symmetric properties of the -adic invariant integrals and investigated interesting relationships between the power sums and the Bernoulli polynomials (see [2, 3, 6, 7, 13]).

The twisted Bernoulli polynomials and numbers and the twisted Euler polynomials and numbers are very important in several fields of mathematics and physics(cf. ). The second author has been interested in the twisted Euler numbers and polynomials and the twisted Bernoulli polynomials and studied the symmetry of power sum and twisted Bernoulli polynomials (see ).

In Section 2, we give interesting identities for the power sums and the generalized twisted Bernoulli polynomials using the symmetric properties for the -adic invariant integral.
