Why Twitch Jungle?
Twitch is pretty weak against jungle monsters, he has literally no sustain and has a bad jungle clearing speed, so why pick him at all?
I will tell you why! Once you hit level 2, you are the deadliest ganker of them all. Just get invisible, get some Autos off, expunge and it's 80% a kill, unless your laner sleeps or the enemy is lucky enough to flash away and survive with some HP.
As Twitch you gotta have to STOMP early game, otherwise it will be pretty hard to win. So the most important thing is that you gank as often as possible, punish enemy laners who don't have flash anymore and get your team a decent advantage.
As Twitch you always wanna start at red, because your goal is to gank with level 2 when the enemy is still level 1. Also, smiting red is pretty nice, because you get some HP back, which you might need. So, ask your toplaner kindly for 3 Autos on red and if he's really nice he also might tank 1-2 hits for you, but that's on him. Sip a healthpot, finish with smite and set up your gank.
Which lane do you gank first?
It highly depends on the enemy champion, if there is a Gnar Toplane and a LeBlanc midlane, your preferable choice would be Gnar, who has no escape except flash. If you are against a Jax, who basically starts with his E, you might be better off by ganking mid. But as I said, it depends on the enemy champ and player, some might be pretty defensive early on against a jungle Twitch, then you gotta play smart.
How to gank?
Basically, you want to get invisible while still in the brush, the position yourself behind the enemy laner, wait for your laner to get in a decent spot, and after that you start firing your deadly bolts. Move with the enemy laner, who normally wants to get away, so that if he flashes you still get your Expunge off. If you play it smart it should be a guaranteed Firstblood! After your first kill, try to gank another lane or clear some jungle camps and get back to base to finish your jungle item. Then go and get your bluebuff, which is probably gone if the enemy jungler isn't that bad. But you won't need blue anyways, so that doesn't matter at all.
