Lightning twitching

Heya has anyone noticed that sometimes their mouse twitches? she seems to jump like something loud has gone off randomly, and then carries on about her buisness. ive not noticed this behavior in her before? does anyone know what it could be? xxx

That is normal mousey behavior and means they are happy.
It is the same thing as "popcorning" (that silly little thing guinea pigs do),except mouse version! It is nothing to worry about.
