When you twist it, the force is through the thickness of the live edge supports. Similar to if you had a thin board and you held it by opposite corners and tried to twist it. So, given the size of the top, when you apply a rotational force to it, it puts the torque through the thickness of the supports, which are not thick enough to prevent the twisting.

Not sure how I’d fix it though without a full re-do of the base using thicker live edge slabs.
