Today we're launching a new thing: Typefully, a distraction-free, write-only editor for Twitter. It lets you write, schedule, and publish tweets and threads in a focused environment.
We've been working heads down on Mailbrew for so long and had almost no time to devote to side projects, but Typefully felt different. We care about this problem a lot, and we decided to spend a few weeks working on it.
✍️ The problem
We've always been avid Twitter users — me and my co-founder @frankdilo met this way — and we've always loved the amount of ideas and insights we read every day on it; but we've also been constantly distracted by Twitter while working, and wish there was a great app to craft quality tweets and threads without getting sucked in the Timeline.
This is also the first product that we've built with @meseali, who recently joined the team and is helping us define our vision, roadmap, and next steps. It's exciting to expand our team and ship our first project together.
💡 The solution
We tried to imagine what could be an amazing writing experience for condensed ideas that our favorite thinkers and creators would enjoy — so we started working on Typefully, a distraction-free write-only interface for Twitter.
We care about mental health, and while our core product Mailbrew helps us tame the firehose of information, and unplug from feeds, we're built Typefully to use Twitter more mindfully (see what we did there?).
✏️ How does it work?
It's simple: Typefully lets you write without distractions, and shows you a live preview of your writing on Twitter.
It's already pretty powerful, and for example, you can publish and schedule tweets and threads with natural language input. After clicking on the schedule button, just write "in 3 hours" or "tomorrow at 4pm" or "on December 6" and we'll take care of it.
You can also press Cmd+Enter to completely hide any interface and go fullscreen, for a 100% focused writing experience.
🍃 What's next
This is just the first version of what can become a powerful tool to craft and publish condensed ideas on the web. Based on feedback and traction we'll define the areas to improve, so we're very excited to know what you think, and see how you will use it.
