A gaming term to describe someone who plays games that typically involve very fast paced action and require excellent reaction times to master.
Classic arcade games such as Missile Command and Defender require quick reflexes. Unreal Tournament and Quake are more contempory examples.
Typically with these games, you have little time to think. Some players will be operating purely on instinct. The rapid movements they make is where the name comes from. The player will be twitching as they operate the controls.
John: Damn, I thought I was good at Tekken and then I played that Japanese kid.
Sally: He doesn't do anything but drink Jolt Cola, play that game and sleep. He's a twitcher.
