Wonder, it’s usually nothing serious. It might be due to a slight electrolyte imbalance in the tissues surrounding the eye and this causes the eye to twitch. Next time it happens, put a pinch of salt under your tongue and see what happens. If it doesn’t clear up the best would be to see your doctor. Good luck.
