HBlade Opportunity & Twin Strike: Do both attacks target the OA-provoker?

If an enemy provokes an OA and I'm a ranger with twin strike and the heavy blade opportunity feat, do both attacks need to be against the OA provoker or can at least one of them be against another creature?
As long as one attack attack is against the target, it should qualify as using Twin Strike against the target for the Opportunity Attack power.


Effect: You make a melee basic attack use Twin Strike against the target.

As always, thanks a lot.
Here's a related question: do both attacks made with Twin Strike this way *have* to be made with a heavy blade?  If I am wielding a Longsword and a Short sword, for instance, does that matter for making the second attack with Twin Strike?

For that matter, does the attack used have to be made with a heavy blade at all?  In the case of Twin Strike, if I have a Longsword and a Hand Crossbow, can I make both attacks with the hand crossbow, instead of using the Longsword? 
I'd say no, since making an opportunity attack using Twin Strike with both a longsword and a short sword still qualify as making an opportunity attack with a heavy blade. As long as one of them was made with a heavy blade, you should be fine i guess.

"Make with" means "use with." So to satisfy the requirement at least one of the attacks must be with a Heavy Blade.

Yeah ... figured that much afterwards.  Two Drow Long Knives means that I could make them as ranged attacks, though, provoking as normal (from creatures other than the creature whose turn it happens to be...)
One Drow Long Knife would mean the same thing (indeed, you only ever use one ranged weapon for ranged Twin Strike, so two would be unnecessary).  As would a Farbond longsword.

But if I want to use it in melee, I have to have two melee weapons equipped, so .... yeah.

One of them could be a longsword for a better damage die...
