Experienced defender Heubach has been struggling for form this term and Twente coach Rini Coolen has opted to relieve him of the captaincy.
German midfielder Cziommer has now been handed the role despite the 23-year-old possibly being sidelined for the next month with a muscle injury.
Cziommer returned to Twente in January after linking up with Schalke last summer and he has quickly asserted his influence on the team.
But, due to his injury, he will have to wait to don the captain's armband until he returns to fitness.
Coolen has named Sander Boschker as vice-captain and the goalkeeper will skipper Twente in Wednesday's Amstel Cup clash with amateur outfit De Baronie.
