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.

Best solution for team communication

Having tried Asana and Slack, I find that Twist is far better for my needs in communicating with my team. Developers are quick to address issues (THANK YOU!!!) and seem intent on improving it.

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.

Great app but still needs some features

Honestly I love twist but some basic things aren’t available here that other message apps have like being able to respond from the lock screen. Hope this improves!
