The stars twinkle due to an effect called STELLAR SCINTILLATION stars are very far from earth and as the light from the distant star passes through our atmosphere which is turbulent, it causes the light to bend or get refracted. so the stars appear to twinkle. planets on the other hand are much closer and this effect is simply too small to be noticed
