We give several complements to the paper ‘The Bruhat order on symmetric varieties’. Our main result shows that the partial order on the set ℐ of twisted involutions in the Weyl groupW, which was introduced in the earlier paper, agrees with the partial order on ℐ induced by the usual Bruhat order onW.
