I sometimes see a sharp increase in fluorescence towards the end of my TwistAmp® exo (RT) reaction; is this normal?

Yes. The polymerase and exonuclease III in TwistAmp® exo reactions are in competition. As the reaction runs out of energy, the exonuclease III starts to dominate. This leads to faster probe cleavage and a jump in fluorescence signal.
