    For a given hyperbolic knot, the third author defined a function whose imaginary part gives the hyperbolic volume of the knot complement. We show that, for a twist knot, the function actually gives the complex volume of the knot complement using Zickert's and Neumann's theory of the extended Bloch groups and the complex volumes.
