Tongue spasm?

Has anybody experienced a tongue-twitch that is so fast and intense that it pulls a single muscle fiber in doesn't let go for a minute or so? I had a pulling feeling on the right side of my tongue and looked in the mirror: There was a small, deep dent on the right side, and after a while it turned into a rapid twitch, then a slower one and finally stopped.

Really strange. Is this an UMN sign?

No, it is not. This is how my induced tongue twitches look like. There is a dent for a couple of seconds (not a minute) and then some twitches occur and the dent is gone.
Best Regards

I have this too. First I can feel it, then I can see a deep dent and after a few seconds it´s starting twitching very fast and the dent is gone. It is always the same spot and it happens every day to me.
