v1.00.43 - Nov 17, 2017

  • ⚙️️ Twist had a subtle makeover to keep it easy on the eyes.

  • 🐛 When you set time off, the dates will now be calculated correctly.
  • 🐛 The spinner on the top-bar would occasionally spin forever. We stopped it.

  • ⚙️️ Threads no longer have the "user is typing" indicator to keep Twist distraction-free.

  • ⚙️️ A few cosmetic updates to please the eye.

  • 🐛 Previously read messages and threads would occasionally reappear as unread, but that's been fixed, so no more deja vu.


  • ⚙️️ If you save a bookmark of a thread in your Inbox, the link will work for as long as you need it to. This works if you copy the URL, too.
  • ⚙️️ We coordinated Twist’s look so options panels look the same throughout.
  • ⚙️️ Channel Members are now sorted alphabetically
  • 🐛 The keyboard shortcut to edit your last comment/message was accidentally editing the wrong comment/message. It’s fixed.


  • ⚙️️ When someone is in away mode, you’ll no longer see their entire away schedule next to their avatar. You’ll instead see a shorter note like “On vacation” and can click their avatar to see details about the date.
  • ⚙️️ You’ll see tooltips placed in more intuitive spots.
  • 🐛 There was too much white space around the notification banner but now it’s laid out perfectly.

  • ⚙️️ We spell-checked our Portuguese translation. Obrigado!

  • ⚙️️ When you attempt to edit a comment or message, you can start typing right away now that the cursor automatically jumps to the edit box.
  • ⚙️️ You may have noticed Twist’s heart emojis were black, but now you’ve got the real heart emoji (❤️️) instead of the suit one (♥️️).
  • 🐛 If you tried to attach a file and it failed for any reason, Twist would keep retrying to attach the file. Now you can delete the failed attachment and stop the endless cycle.
  • 🐛When choosing a language, Chinese languages are now listed correctly.


  • ⚙️️ When you preview an attachment, it will look right even when the attachment is especially high or wide.


  • ⭐️ When you’re writing a comment or message and click away to something else, you’ll receive a confirmation asking if you’re sure you want to discard your edit. This ensures you won’t lose your edit if you accidentally click on another link.
  • ⚙️️ You can now see time-off information on your user profile, as well as edit your time off details when looking at your own profile.
  • ⚙️️ You can now see the connected Google email address for your account.
