This theory that SWBs are twitchy is garbage. Twitchy steering is caused by over-control from the rider. Usually because the rider is tensing up, sometimes because the rider is trying to push the handlebars like they would on an upright. Take a deep breath, let it out, relax your upper body, let the natural curl of your fingers - and nothing else - hold your hands on the handlebars and let your arms hang limply. When you've done all that, push on your dominant foot's pedal and take off.
