Abstract: It is known that the set of twist points in the boundary of the von Koch snowflake domain has full harmonic measure. We provide a new, simple proof, based on the doubling property of the harmonic measure, and on the existence of an equivalent measure, invariant and ergodic with respect to the shift.
