In brief: Unlikely

If we are talking about an infant sometimes occasionally pulling on the ears may be symptom. There are "tics" which are usually twitching, eye blinking which if worsens may suggest something more serious(unrelated to the ear infection).
This condition should be evaluated by a neurologist. Allergies which can lead to sinusitis can cause nose twitching because of the itchy nose.
