So twiny() is up and running with a FixedLocator and Formatter for the ticks on the upper xAxis but am now unable to rotate these tick labels.  Is there a special method to set the rotation, etc with FixedLocators?

You should not call set_text directly, instead you need to call
If you want the top (right) ticks have different ticklabels than the
bottom (left) ticks, that is not possible.
You need to make another axes by calling twin*.
