Telegram vs Twist: What are the differences?

Developers describe Telegram ** as "A cloud-based instant messaging and voice over IP service". Users can send messages and exchange photos, videos, stickers, audio and files of any type. It provides instant messaging, simple, fast, secure and synced across all your devices. On the other hand, **Twist is detailed as "Slack without the annoying distractions". Twist is a communication app for teams who believe there’s more to work than keeping up with group chat apps, created by the makers of Todoist.

Telegram and Twist belong to "Group Chat & Notifications" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Telegram are:

  • Simple
  • Fast
  • Secure

On the other hand, Twist provides the following key features:

  • Use threads to keep all your conversations clearly separated by topic so replies won’t get buried in an endless stream of group chat
  • Automatically turns your threaded conversations into a searchable catalog of topics
  • Communicate in full thoughts rather than one line at a time
