Real friends. Real life.

Our world has never been more digitally connected, but as a result we’ve never been less engaged in real life. This has led to major changes in how we communicate and socialize. 58% of GenZ/Millenials are seeking relief from Social Media, 30% of Millennials say they're lonely and "22% say they don't have a single friend.

Twenty is a new social platform with over 2 million users and is the best way to get together with friends in real life by allowing people to see who’s around, see who’s down and hang out! We started Twenty to be a pathway to a more authentic and fulfilling social life by driving real human connection. Instead of measuring success through time spent in-app, we optimize most for how often our users get together in person.

Twenty is powered by innovative technology, product design, strategic partnerships and investments including Live Nation, Roc Nation and Endeavor. The company has raised over $40 million in total funding from the likes of Accel, Maveron, SV Angel, Ron Conway and Sound Ventures. The Board of Directors includes Arianna Huffington and Rande Gerber. Twenty has offices in San Francisco, New York and Utah.
