Can eyelid twitching be a sign of a minor seizure?

Unlikely. If the eyelid twitching is the only symptom, it is unlikely that it is a seizure. Twitching of eyelids is a common tic or something called blepharospasm. Blepharospasm can be caused by dry eyes, stress, or tiredness. If it is troublesome, see your doctor.
Myokymia. Random twitching of an eyelid, which happens in normal people, is called myokymia (an involuntary, spontaneous, quivering of a few muscle cell bundles within a muscle). Myokymia starts and stops spontaneously. In the eyelids, it can last a few minutes to a few days. It can be caused by stress, dry eyes, caffeine, lack of sleep. Reduce intake of alcohol/tobacco/caffeine, get rest, reduce stress.
