It looks like one of AE's animation presets. Look in AE' Animate In text presets. Try 'em out. Satisfaction ensues.

if you are looking to create your own using text animators, try this:

twirl down the text layer properties, click the 'animate' menu to the right of the 'text' property group and select 'enable per character 3d'.

from the same menu, select position to create an animator for that property. then, from the 'add' menu to the right of that animator select property>rotation to add that property to the same animator.

also from the same 'add' menu choose selector>wiggly to add a wiggly selector, and you can delete the default range selector from the animator.

for a basic setup, try setting the z rotation for the animator to be 90 and the position to be 50, 50, -2000. you'll likely want to modify those later, but those should get you started.

if you scrub thru the timeline now, your letters will be randomly moving around.. not quite what you want. to stop that random movement, in the wiggly animator settings, set wiggles/sec to 0. now they will be locked into a random state.

to animate them from random to ordered, key frame the max amount to go from 100% to 0%, and key frame the min amount to go from -100% to 0%. now they letters should come together from the random state to the ordered state.

since the wiggly selector effect the position of the letters in both negative and positive directions, you can animate the z position of the text layer (transform>position) to go from beyond/behind the camera to the final position, timing that with the keyframes that you have for the max and min amounts.

you should have something that resembles the example, continue to modify the settings to get what you need.
