I want to slightly twist (or bend, displace, screw or curve?) an object in blender. It’s an imported SVG object with an applied solidify modifier (and with lots of weird vertices).

Here’s my file:

And here is a video of what I want to to animate (the actual object): https://youtu.be/H0QXHbf7TVo I want it to displace horizontally.

I tried to use a simple deform and a curve but I don’t get the desired result.

How do I make the object twist this way?

I'm not sure you can achieve this with a Simple Deform modifier as your two tips are actually moving forward and backward, maybe you should try a Lattice modifier (or Surface Deform modifier), give it 2 shape keys and switch from shape key 1 to shape key 2:
