So I was messing around with my newest Rubik's cube, and I apparently twisted a corner when solving it, and now I don't know what corner it was.

If there is someone out there that knows how to figure this out, that would be a great help! Thanks in advance.

    $\begingroup$ I guess, try your best to solve the Rubik first. At the end, there may be one corner which is twisted, twist that corner. Anyway as far as I know, twisting corner A doesn't imply you must twist corner A again to make the Rubik solvable (it can be solvable by twisting other corner, say corner B). $\endgroup$

It won't matter.

You can always twist any pair of corners, one clockwise, the other anticlockwise, so you can move the misalignment to any corner you want.

The only thing that matters is that you twist the corner in the opposite direction from the initial, unwanted twist; otherwise you end up in the other unsolvable position. (If you twist a corner piece on a solved cube, a corner piece has three possible orientations, only one of them is solvable.)

Solving the rest of the (corners of the) cube will easily tell you which direction you should twist, which is why @athin recommends it.
