As someone earlier said, some of the winrate has to be attributed to the novelty of twitch, since he's played so infrequently. It's hard to do well against a champion when you don't know its abilities/how much damage it does.

Twitch is not op due to the fact he has some major weakeness/flaws

1. His as steriod is unreliable since it activated after leaving his stealth .
2. He will lose a straight up trade due to a few reasons. He is squishy, he has no cc and he also lacks burst damage spells.
3. His ult can be miss used and make you miss all your attacks if the target moves around. It is much better in teamfights.
4. lack of escape outside of stealth which is also his steriod. So if he uses his steriod he has no escape.
5. Twitch WILL die when focused . He cant lifesteal tank very well like the other ad carries.
6. Like vayne he has no poke before teamfights outside of his auto attacks. He can use gunk>expunge. But it really hurts his mana for a very small amount of damage mid/late game.

Something that also holds twitch back is that the holy trinity of ez,corki and graves all take a dump on him in lane. These three have so much burst , tons of poke and have escapes.

Twitch will stomp or has even matchups with the other carries though.

These are things that keep twitch from being op. Twitch is definately viable i believe mostly due to his ult and stealth. Which are both powerful tools if used right.

I think twitch may become a solo queue pubstomper. I cant see him doing well in tournements. Hopefully the new items will give him a niche.

The hurricane item seems like it would be very nice on him.

how much of his win rate can be attributed basically entirely to Vampyro though? Spams a lot of normals even when he isnt playing twitch in 1800+ ranked.

The sample size of Twitch solo queue games is 17 000 in a week. SO pretty sure that is not open to manipulation by any single player
