What are messages?

Messages let you send short, quick communications to a teammate or group of teammates. They’re useful for asking a question, sharing a link or saying thanks.

Take a look at messages in action:

Use messages to...

  • Share a video chat link with a teammate for a meeting.
  • Let a teammate know about a typo.
  • Congratulate a teammate.
  • Share a gif and have a laugh.
  • Send an idea to your entire team using general messaging.
Use threads more than messages to keep your Twist organized. Read more about when to use threads vs messages.
