Twinkling Titanite is an Upgrade Material in Dark Souls 3.

Twinkling Titanite

"Twinkling titanite for weapon reinforcement.
Reinforce weapons steeped in strength to +4.
These unique weapons cannot be reinforced with ordinary titanite, nor can they be infused.

Unless one uses this twinkling titanite, which reinforces these weapons without unraveling their inherent strength."

        If you do Siegward's questline, you can get a Twinkling Titanite to +5 before ever fighting your second Lord of Cinder.

              If you manage to find and kill all the crystal lizards, buy the three from Greirat after sending him to Irithyl and trading the crows(both for a twinkly and a slab) you can actually fully upgrade the weapon before you even fight Pontiff Sulyvahn.

                  Most of the weapons from the Ringed City require Twinkling Titanite as well (the 3 Ringed Knight weapons, Ledo's hammer, Aquamarine dagger, White Birch bow, Crucifix of the Mad King, Preacher's Right Arm).

                    There’s a 4th one in the painted world, after the first incouter with the Great Wolf, just around the cliff side you’ll see a tower with Greatbow archers in it, ascend the tower, climb the ladder and then go down the set of stairs just to the left and there will be a crystal lizard that drops 1x Twinkling titanite.

                      if you can't get to Archdragon Peak yet, fight Hobbled Clerics in the Ringed City. It can take some time but they definitely drop Twinkling Titanite.

                        With the Covetous Silver Serpent Ring +3 you can farm the infinite-respawning knight at the second Archdragon Peak Bonfire for 5,400 souls. Every 3 kills buys you one Twinkling Titanite from the Shrine Handmaiden. With the Dragon Tooth I can kill him once every 30 seconds indefinitely, so thats a Twinkling Titanite every 1 minute and 30 seconds.
