### Abstract

We develop a formalism for the resummation of target mass corrections in off-forward two-photon amplitudes given by a chronological product of electromagnetic currents, arising in, e.g., deeply virtual Compton scattering. The method is based on a relation of composite operators with a definite twist to harmonic tensors, which form an irreducible representation of the Lorentz group. We give an application of the framework for the matrix elements of twist-two operators.
