Fuel Filter Twisted

First time changing the fuel filters on my truck since buying it. The top filter looked all twisted up when I removed it. Is this the result of someone over tightening the cap? I always tighten everything to spec with a torque wrench. Long time reader first time posting, will post in the introductions area soon. Hopefully the picture attached correctly. Thanks

My first though is that is not a motorcraft filter.

The filter says Napa Gold 3899 on the bottom. The previous owner said it was changed at 55K miles. I just changed it at 65K with a Motorcraft brand filter.

Install both filters on the caps before install. This helps preventing them from twisting. I did that one time, it was motorcraft.
