When my bunny runs around the house, I sometimes see her twitch her tail.
Is she trying to perhaps wag her tail like a dog, or does this happen for some other reason?

Believe it or not, your rabbit can, and will wag his/her tail. Indicates defiance – “No, I don’t want to go to my cage!” -or- “You can’t make me!” -or- “You’re not the boss of me!” Watch closely and you’ll see that your rabbit will occasionally “back-talk” – they just think you won’t notice!
Although, from the examples I found, where owners describe what the rabbit was doing when the twitching happened, it seems rabbits also do it when they're excited. It might just be like when dogs wag their tails; "While some wags are indeed associated with happiness, others can mean fear, insecurity, a social challenge or even a warning that if you approach, you are apt to be bitten".
