I've never seen it but is jungling viable on Twisted Treeline?

Only sort of. There isn't really even a 'laning' phase in Twisted Treeline, so there isn't particularly time for a 'Jungling' phase either. Rather, a good 'jungler' in 3v3 moves back and forth between lanes, constantly harassing/ganking the enemy team into passivity while his allies gain a gold and health advantage. In between lanes junglers clear out neutral mobs to the best of their ability to farm up gold.
The goal of someone in the jungle in 3v3 isn't to isolate themselves and occasionally gank, but rather to roam the map, controlling both lanes and being extremely responsive to enemy movements to give his team the upper hand in teamfights and ganks.
The smallness of the maps means that anyone in the jungle has to be extremely aware of enemy movements, and always be there to ensure that a 2v3 never happens for his teammates.
This is what makes Lee Sin, Shaco, and Tryndamere, for example, so great at jungling in 3's. They can easily kill jungle mobs while hopping walls and generally being a huge pain/force of fear to the enemy team
