Channels can be public or private. Public channels are visible to everyone, and private channels will only be visible to invited team members.
Here’s a channel in action:

List of threads in channel
You can organize channels however you like:
By team (i.e. #Marketing, #Sales)
By project (i.e. #New Website, #New Client)
By time period (i.e. #Q1 2017, #Summer 2018)
Every Twist team has a default channel, which your team can use for whatever purpose suits you best. At Doist, we call our general channel the #Doist Lounge and use it for company news and other team-wide announcements. Read more about general channels and general messages.
