Introduction

I have been playing twitch for a while now and believe he is one of the best carries in the game when used correctly. Not only does he have ridiculous damage output but he is capable of stealthing and escaping from many hairy situations as well as setting up ambushes or simply scouting out the enemy jungle. With some recent (and much needed imo) nerfs ppl seem to be a little confused about what is the best way to build twitch now, I think this is the way to go now and figured I'd try writing a guide for him. This is my first guide so feel free to offer some constructive criticism.

Pros / Cons

Pros
Stealhed-I can not stress how useful this is enough, it allows you to go so many places without fear of being ganked, just be sure to keep and eye out for detection and how long you have left before you uncloak
Damage-Twitch used to be all about speed and crits, but with recent changes an AD twitch with armor penetration and some slight AS is the way to go not to mention this is great for destroying towers

Cons
Squishy-Twitch is one of the most powerful champs in the game, so naturally he's not gonna be able to take a whole lot of damage before your dead. You need to be able to use your stealth to counteract this deficit, it is vital
Slow-Goes along with his high damage output again, and again, you use stealth to minimize the problem

Summoner Skills

When I use twitch I always use ((Teleport)) and (Flash) for a few reasons
1. Twitch is slow, until you get your http://cdn2.mobafire.com/images/item/boots-of-mobility.gif your gonna want the extra mobility getting around the map. It's also great late game for back dooring if you need to/have the opportunity too.
2. I ((love flash)) you can use it to escape over walls, catch fleeing foes, and most importantly if someone hits you before you can stealth, it breaks line of sight allowing u to disappear

Runes

Like I said, twitch excels with AD and armor penetrations, so naturally we're gonna go with armor penetration quints and marks. I like AS seals because you still want a little boost in this area. You have a little bit of freedom when it comes to glyphs depending on your play style, I usually go with some mana regen or cooldown reduction, but you can experiment.

Masteries

Just your standard 21/9/0 mastery set up, you could go with utility for your final 9 but I feel that twitch really needs the extra survivability you gain from the defense masteries.
