A "(move slowly and twitch)" post...........?????

Lately,Ive discovered how to unravel the mysteries engulfed in a cryptic crossword clue.Unlike the easy crossword,this requires you to spend some time reading the clue.Then you gotta rack your brains,turn the clue inside-out,read it again until it makes sense and finally when you get it-you keep aside a tiny moment to marvel at the intelligence of the given hint.The dictionary or thesaurus wouldn't be of much assistance unless you're in the midst of some foreign word.To help you see the big picture,here are a few examples-

Time to eat?(3)-TEA(eat~tea)
Under a cloud,I sprinted out(4)-RAIN(Need I explain?)
Bringing rain,it envelopes half of us in shivering cold(5)-CLOUD('u' in cold=cloud)
Start as you finish,in debt!(5)-DEBUT('u' in debt=debut)
Possibly tame lamb?(4)-MEAT
Standard reached by dad at the end of the year(3)-PAR('pa'r)

If this intrigued you,then you must've figured out what the title of the post is........
