We will introduce (super)twistors for AdS_{d+1} spacetimes. An AdS_{d+1} twistor is a pair of ordinary (conformal) twistors for d-dimensional Minkowski space (modulo certain identifications). We will show how twistors simplify the physics of massive and massless particles on AdS_{d+1}, and sketch how the twistor construction extends to tensionless strings and p-branes.
