“You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give.” ~Winston Churchill


Introducing Twist...a new way to communicate!

Let's Twist!

As you've probably heard, we’ve seen a lot of new volunteers since March and the limitations of Google Chat, our old messaging client, have become more apparent. We need a better way. We need to be able to keep all our volunteers and staff members connected in easy to manage groups, with a centralized interface, and easy to use tools.
 
So say hello to Twist!
 
Twist is a modern communication tool that provides us with a flexible and easy forum for community discussion. With apps for macOS, Windows, iOS, Android, Linux, and the web, our conversations will stay synced across all devices. Visit Twist's download center for details on the different versions available!
 
The roll-out for this new tool will be gradual, starting with the large Chat hangouts like the Virtual Water Cooler, Literary Salon, Listener Bureau, Training Hangouts, and QA Hangouts. When those groups have changed over, and everyone is comfortably using Twist, we can  move Project communication too. Starting with Literature projects, and then Textbooks. We’ll allow for a few months to complete this transition as we all get accustomed to this new tool! Once complete, we’ll have all volunteers working and chatting together in the same teams with the ability to join larger group conversations too!
 
We added a text Twist Reference Guide to our Resources page and we encourage you to watch this introductory video about Twist!
