What is Twist?

Twist is a team communication service that emphasizes conversation organization and work relevance. It does so in a way that promotes asynchronous communication for more thoughtful discourse.

When working together in a company environment, there can be hundreds of conversations happening at once in multiple forms, from email chains to chat threads across multiple channels. Keeping up with it all is overwhelming to the point that important information gets lost and communication suffers.

The goal of Threads is to keep discussions organized and accessible to everyone. With one topic per thread, every team member can easily keep track of parallel conversations and stay up to date on what’s happening. With clearly titled threads and a simple to use search function, you will be able to find any topic or decision even years after it was discussed or decided.

Threads ensure that conversations won’t move on without you. That means you no longer have to check every little ping to stay in the loop. Disconnect to focus on real work and catch up when you’re ready. Twist's layout promotes people read each thread in a spacious way to process, think about, and respond to each topic in a thorough and thoughtful way.

love the idea behind Twist --> asynchronous communication is more valuable to your team in the long run than the instant communication that we've all become used to with Slack

A less distracting communication app which manages notifications better.

Twist is more organized and less intrusive and distracting than Slack. Its interface is very nice, the app is easy to use, and it's available on all the major platforms, so for me, it's the best alternative to Slack, Hangouts and Microsoft Teams.

Topics (the killer feature that's made Slack frustrating), excellent, clean design, very easy to onboard, integrations, channels, messaging, etc.
