Has anyone tried the "duck tape twitch" where you put the tape on there nose? I've seen it on videos just wondering if anyone has seen it work?

If your horse just needs a distraction its a great and inexpensive option,
If one cannot work on the issue, sure! It's far better than the horrible nose twitch.
Had a horse extremely fidgity to clip, tried to kick me once or twice clipping by his rear legs too. Put the duct tape on and after a few minutes he was completely complacent. Worth a try.
MY ferrier used it on one of our horses. It worked really well but It did not do anything for the training in the long run. It is a great tool for in the moment
I've had it work very well for horses that can be a bit fidgety or playful with clippers or braiding! But it will not make much of a difference if your horse is truly protesting.
