Ask @TwistBit:

What is your favorite song that you have made? (Collaboration, remix, or original. Doesn't matter)

I have quite a few favorites; they tend to be spaced out pretty evenly (about one or two per year). Chronologically (from earliest to latest), I believe my personal favorites are: Zyzzx, Spin Me Right Round (TwistBit Remix), The Eighth Night, The Memetastic Mr. Sheep, my FE: Fates remix, and Ghost Sandwich.

What's the usual process you go through to make music? Do you start with the drums, synth, bass, interlude, etc.? How long does it take, on average?

I usually start with drums, although if I get a really good bassline idea, I throw that together before laying down a beat. The drums are usually really important, because they drive the track and flavor it throughout. Songs have taken me as little as 48 hours, although I don't usually rush so much these days. I've even let ideas marinate for two months or more before finally laying them down. It's often best to have at least half of a song planned out in your head before you actually get to work composing it; otherwise you're left floundering with a half-baked idea, and you're back at square one.
At least that's my experience.
