Girar is not, and certainly not 'torcer', used for a person to "turn" when giving directions - just 'ir'. Faulty vocab for this context.
If you look in a spanish dictionary, you will see that girar and torcer are used when giving or talking about directions.
In Mexico they definitely use girar for turning. I have heard it from natives.
