I have encountered the term "twisty" in RoboHelp .

>From their online help:

~~~~~

Add or change images in a hotspot

1. Select Drop-down hotspot style in the Styles dialog box.
2. Expand Character styles to view the Drop-down hotspot style.
3. Click the Select Twisties Images button [icon of a right-pointing triangle].
4. Select an image to display closing drop-down text and one image to open a drop-down hotspot.
5. Select an option to place the images either at the Start Of Text or End Of Text. Similarly, you can change images for expanding text.

~~~~~

Typical twisty images are plus and minus signs, and right- and down-pointing triangles.

I'm not saying this validates the term, just suggesting where it may have originated.
