    i'm not sure whether this is 1. slack + threads or 2. email + channels

    either way sounds good.

      I think Twist matches user's mental model better for organizing conversations, which email does well. So it's familiar layout helps.

        I agree. The problem I had when I used to use Slack was it was hard to find the right parts of a conversation (there was a lot of noise). Colleagues got annoyed when I created a channel per project, which was my rudimentary attempt to create threads, I guess.

        I could imagine creating a channel per project in Twist, too, with threads being about problems we're trying to solve in that project.

        Seems like a good way to communicate, will try with my team to see what we learn.

          Yes. Noise is a big factor with Slack. Would love to hear about your learnings after trying out Twist. Thanks :)
