How to format a comment or message

The Twist composer is currently not available on mobile devices. Sorry about that! Instead, you can format your comments or messages by using Markdown.

Use our handy composer to create compelling, well thought-out, and easy to understand posts and messages!

If you want to check what your post will look like before posting, click Preview in the top of the composer.
