New App: Limit Interruptions with a Mindful Team Communication App, Twist

Twist, a new team communication tool, launches today to give teams a mindful way to collaborate. Twist is designed with asynchronous communication in mind. With Twist, your team conversations are organized into team-wide threads or private messages.

Differentiating itself from real-time chat tools, Twist's interface doesn't show which teammates are currently online. This was a purposeful choice, according to Doist, the makers of Twist. Since the remote Doist team spans several time zones (much like the Zapier team), they wanted to develop a tool that didn't pressure teammates across the world to respond immediately. Instead, Twist gives their team uninterrupted work time without distractions.

Without constant distractions, you too can watch your team's productivity skyrocket. Boost it even more by using Twist's new Zapier integration to automate tedious parts of your work day. Create Zaps that automatically connect Twist to 750+ other business tools so your team knows about important tasks, events, and conversations without navigating back and forth between apps.

Thanks to Twist and Zapier, rest assured that you're not missing out on important team conversations or activities and finally achieve a new level of productivity.
