Work is changing. Messaging is changing, too.

Twist is messaging for teams burned out by real-time, all-the-time communication. Instead of being chained to the 9-to-5 and interrupted by meetings, emails, and Slack chats, join the async work revolution.

"Best communication app for remote teams" — PC Mag

“On Slack, I had constant FOMO. On Twist, I know I'm always on top of everything.” — Manuel F., SparkLoop

Conversations don’t get buried with threads
• In Twist, one topic = one thread, instead of a stream of team chat (like on Slack).
• Super-specific tagging means that only the right teams see your messages.

Focus stays on what’s relevant in your inbox
• See all your thread updates in one place, stop wading through unnecessary team messaging.
• Process thread updates and mark them done to reach Inbox Zero.

Decisions are made out in the open in structured channels
• Dive deep into any team communication, whether last week or last year.
• Invite remote guests to specific channels to hash out project details.

History is learned from, thanks to references
• Close threads and share links to all the original context.
• Find all threads and communication quickly with a super-fast search.

• Import everything from Slack on the web.
• Connect with async work tools like Google Drive, Asana, and Calendly.
• Set up remote team meetings with Zoom, Skype, and Jitsi Meet.
• Forget presence indicators, typing dots, or read receipts.
• Use keyboard shortcuts to speed up your workflow.
• Built by Doist, a global leader in remote and asynchronous working.

Bottom line, you’re free to close Twist … and work will be there, whenever you get back.

Join the async revolution. Sign up now.

Overall satisfied, but Needs to improve

Really a great platform to manage all conversion with files and etc if you are working as a team remotely or in a small office.

Some options are needed to add.
1. Take a backup to whole conversation or threat.

Need to fix.
1. No notifications if anyone send a msg or something in iPhone X (I am not sure about other phones) even all my notifications are allowed for this application.

Developer Response ,

It is so much better than Slack

Instead of Slack style threads they have forum-type threads that are separate from the chat area. Big improvement.

definitely not a slack alternative

markup editor, lack of file browser, ability to remove attachments or integrate google drive was a deal breaker. their marketing speaks unnecessarily loud bashing slack, yet they themselves dont half half of the features slack offers.
