Twist – the Slack alternative
for teams that prioritize clarity

Join over 100,000 teams who have ditched the stress of Slack for the peaceful productivity of Twist.

Real-time chat is suffocating...

Slack is fun at first, but quickly becomes overwhelming. Teams get stuck in never-ending group chats. Information gets buried. Stress is palpable.

...but in Twist,
teams can breathe.

Work flows naturally when you’re not pressured to respond immediately. Twist gives people the space and time to make progress on work that matters.

Twist vs Slack

Convert chaos into calmness

Trade cluttered chats for organized conversations

Slack is a mess of content

Multiple topics get jumbled together inside Slack’s Channels. It’s exhausting and time-consuming to follow along. Context gets lost in a matter of minutes.

Twist stays neatly organized

Twist organizes discussions into threads that stay on topic and in context. Information remains neatly structured and easy to find (even years later).

Ditch relentless distractions for focused work

Slack demands your attention

Group chats quickly move on without you if you aren’t there to constantly monitor them. Diverting your focus to respond immediately becomes the only way to keep up.

Twist respects it

Twist is asynchronous by default, so your team can finally prioritize focused, productive work without fear of missing something important.

Switch bite-sized Slack-tivity for true transparency

Information gets buried in Slack

With so much noise in Slack, it's easy to miss important messages. People start defaulting to DMs – today, 70% of Slack usage is private. Knowledge gets siloed and transparency suffers.

Twist preserves team knowledge

Information in Twist is easily discoverable by default. And because the full context of each thread is preserved (forever), it promotes a more transparent culture, greater self-sufficiency, and fewer meetings.

Replace fragmented communication with rich collaboration

Conversations fracture in Slack

Slack’s real-time-only nature makes thoughtful conversations nearly impossible. Team communication ends up fracturing further into emails, meetings, and documents.

In Twist, they flourish

Twist is an all-in-one tool: Threads provide space to troubleshoot tough problems and have in-depth discussions about real work. Direct Messages are convenient for quick questions or just to socialize.
