Twig Question

vim: persistent :set syntax for a given filetype?

I'm working on a Symfony2 project which uses Twig, and the filetypes are

myfile.html.twig
. Vim doesn't automatically detect the syntax highlighting and so applies none. I can use
:set syntax=HTML
after I've opened the file but this is a pain when jumping between files.

Is there a way to persistently set the syntax highlighting for a specific file type in vim?

You can use autocmd to accomplish that, i.e.:

autocmd BufNewFile,BufRead *.html.twig   set syntax=html

Should work.
