Asynchronous Communications for Work

Asynchronous Communications for Work

Slack the product wasn’t the issue. It’s perfectly designed and built for what it does—real-time messaging for teams. It was real-time messaging itself that was the problem. But when we explored alternatives, we found that Slack’s competitors promised the exact same model of real-time chat.

That’s how, one year into our Slack experiment, we made the decision to create Twist, an entirely new platform—one that centers around calmer, more organized, and more productive communication. via Doist

Quite interesting. They’re trying to solve the shallowness and real time frenzy that Slack can become. Don’t get me wrong, Slack is essential in our development but it can be a bane as well.
