We extend the Adaptive Aggregation Based Domain Decomposition Multigrid (DD-$\alpha$AMG) algorithm to $N_f=2$ twisted mass fermions. We show numerical results for an $N_f=2$ ensemble of twisted fermions with a clover term simulated at the physical value of the pion mass. We fine-tuned the parameters to achieve a speedup comparable to the one obtained for clover fermions. We also present a complete analysis of the aggregation parameters that provides a novel insight on the multigrid methods for lattice QCD independently of the fermion discretization.
