Twitch will die very fast if everyone on your team buy thorn mail. Not only does it reduce damage taken from twitch, it will kill him in less than 5 secs as his hp pool is generally low. Banshee will reduce the damage taken from thorn mail but doesn't really nullify it. His spray and prey hit everyone on the enemy team, with rapid attack speed it will be 1500 per sec (300 per teamate). He will go down relatively quickly even with decent magic resist.

Another thing is this rat is extremely swishy. The best thing to do when he initiate on you may not be running but go in to the bush, forcing him to move in close, then strike it asap. Or you can strike him asap if you can out damage him. When I play Yi I just cleanse his exhaust, cast ult and ghost blade and drop twitch in less than 2 secs with green pots.

Ryze and AP Sion are hard counters to Twitch. AP Sion is probably better off because he'll have a lot more health and a stun as opposed to a snare. Also those potions that let you see invis WORK. Don't know how many times I've caught a Twitch while he's trying to position himself with one of them.

Akali is the hard counter to twitch. You can instantly get to him whenever he uncloaks in a team fight and it's surprising if you can't drop him within 1 second.

Shaco or Annie will pull Twitch's head off if he tries to gank them without help.

The best counter to Twitch is burst damage.

The second best counter is an Exhaust.

Even if you have burst damage make sure someone's carrying exhaust and exhausts the rat as soon as he shows his face and tries to ult. Nothing wrong with having a failsafe, especially in solo queue where your burst might not focus twitch when he rears his ugly head.

All of Twitch's abilities revolved around his auto-attack; his expunge and dehabilitating poison requires poison stacks from his auto-attack, his stealth provides an attack speed bonus on his auto-attack, and his ulti causes his auto-attacks to hit further and faster. So wouldn't a blind or exhaust be the best choice against him? Like Teemo's blind dart...Exhaust, Twitch cleanses, then blind dart. Twitch won't be able to do anything.

Oh, just saying, one Cho'Gath feast on Twitch takes about 50% of his health.

If you blind twitch, his ultimate is countered, he probably just ganked you so he can't go invisable, and he using his other two spells arn't that strong cause if your reflexes were good enough he hit you once or twice making his spells not worth it. Exhaust or a Teemo make good counters.
Also, oracle for sure. Getting that first strike cause you can see him and if he doesn't relise this gives you an advantage.
