Fast Company named Twist a “World Changing Idea”!

Work communication that won’t distract you all day.

Twist makes collaboration easy from anywhere. Unlike Slack and Teams, it uses threads to organize all your team’s conversations — asynchronously.

• Twist threads never bury important information in an avalanche of chit-chat (like Slack)
• Keep conversations organized and on topic → one topic = one thread

• Create a central place to gain visibility on your team’s work with channels
• Organize channels by topic, project, or client

• Help your team focus on the work that matters, instilling more calm and less anxiety with smarter notifications
• The inbox gathers threads in one place, allowing team members to easily prioritize what matters to them

• Give your team a historical record to learn from
• Quickly onboard new employees and easily share context to past decisions

• Talk one-on-one with messages, privately
• Use messages to continue the work banter with all the gifs and emojis you’re familiar with, iron out last-minute details, or give feedback

• Plus all the integrations your team relies on
• Bring all your apps with you when you switch to Twist or go a step further and create your own custom automations

Plus, in Twist, “NO” is a feature:
• NO more need for back-to-back meetings: Gain more time in the day for deep work by swapping team status meetings for async threads
• NO green dots: Keep your team in the flow without the pressure to respond now
• NO typing indicators: Protect your team from design tricks that hijack their time and attention

The bottom line? Twist means productivity over presence. Sign up now.

Works great most of the time

My team and I’ve been using it for sometime now and it’s been great. However, I wish the notification feature would be more consistent because sometimes I miss messages.

Developer Response ,

Hi Deryck! We are sorry you missed some messages due to the vacation feature. We would like to have a deeper look into this issue. Could you please message us via so we can get in touch? Thank you 🙏

I love this app & concept

I’ve used slack for several years, and been bothered by all the notifications and lack of focus on threaded (on topic) communication. I absolutely love the concept and implementation of this app! It is my go-to for teams now, and completely replaces the need for email in my book.

It feels in some ways like it is still in its infancy in supporting some features. Here’s an example: I love how I can share links to specific threads, but I don’t like how it takes users out of the app to the browser, rather than just redirecting them into that specific thread within the app.

That said, I will push teams that I’m involved in to move to this app, and any new teams I am involved in will use this if I can help it. I’m a student and growing app developer myself, and see a lot of value in organized, asynchronous communication. Thanks for taking the time to really think through fundamentals of communication and productive work before developing just another communication tool. This is not just another one, this is the only one I want to use.

Developer Response ,

Hello, thank you very much for the detailed feedback! We will take your suggestion regarding opening links into consideration for future 👍

Terrible Customer Service!

We Occasionally have technical difficulties with the platform. It takes DAYS to communicate with customer support and usually they never come to with an answer or fix. You must figure the issue out for yourself or just live with this issue. There is no phone number and Twist support will NOT communicate by phone. Going back and forth via email for days is not a good use of time to fix a technical issue on the platform. I get the asynchrony idea. That is great for many things, but there is still a time and a place where an actual phone call is necessary and these people do not get it!

Developer Response ,

Hello! We are sorry to hear this. We are not offering phone support at this stage, sorry about that. We appreciate your feedback and it has been noted 🙏
