    When I googled Donít get twitchy, it ask: Did you mean "don't get witchy".

    So, I was wondering if "don't get twichy"=don't get witchy?

    Here is the picture! There's a boy holding a gun aimed at a bad guy. The bad guy leering says: 'Don't get twitch!'

    From twicthy: Web Search Results from Answers.com

    twicthy : Characterized by jerky or spasmodic motion: the twitchy whiskers of a cat.

    So, I think the bad guy means: Calm down because you may pull the trigger! That's my interpretation.

    Re: Don't get twitchy

    Correct. If you are twitchy, you are very nervous and could do something suddenly.

    The reason for the google question is that it did not find that string and suggests a possible alternative. It means nothing.
