You should be able to use adb with TWRP to push the rom onto the phone. Connect your phone to your computer and check to make sure adb sees it by running:

Code:
adb devices
If your device is listed, you can push the rom zip file by running:

Code:
adb push romzipfile.zip /sdcard/
Where romzipfile.zip is the name of the rom zip file that you want to install. Once the transfer has finished you should be able to install the zip using TWRP. Hope this helps!
