However, when doing that, it is easy to get warnings for excessive rpm and speed for the flaps, a few seconds after takeoff. So, as soon as I takeoff, should I reduce throttle a bit and retract the flaps to zero? Or perhaps I am doing a too shallow climb for the Twin Otter (around 1500 fpm, but it can handle 2500 fpm...)

You use full throttle for the takeoff run, but as soon as you're airborne, you want to reduce throttle to keep torque pressure within limits. You'll also want to accelerate further and retract flaps shortly after takeoff, and pull back on the prop condition a little for the climb.
