Launched in 2011 by Massive Media, Twoo quickly rose from the ranks and grew to be one of the largest chat networks globally. It did not just invade the chat world; it also gave birth to a new wave of dating sites by combining easy access and navigation to help its users land dates. Although it does not feature matchmaking, it uses an algorithm that connects you to those that match best with your location and interests.
The success didn't end there, as you know. After negotiations, Twoo became part of the Match community, the leading provider of what we can consider the most successful dating sites today – Tinder, OkCupid, PlentyOfish, and a lot more. This gave way to the rebranding of Twoo in the summer of 2018, creating a wider community and implementing stricter rules for its old and new users. Clearly, the partnership heightened the hype and so, Twoo found its way to a more zestful phase.
Today, the site is available in 38 different languages as it is already operating in most countries. Reports have recorded that it has over 50 million members with approximately 17 million unique visitors per month. It is most popular in South America and Central Europe, but it surely is a prominent name in other parts of the world.
Indeed, Twoo has been a blast since Day One. The figures and reports about it are undeniably impressive. But is it really what it claims to be? Is it "THE" chat site of the new generation? Join us as we explore each of its functions and features. Read on below and see for yourself whether your time, effort, and money will be worth spending on this site.
Sign up using a valid email address or your Facebook account
Option to select your language is available
Complete the registration process by verifying your email
You are immediately asked to upload a photo for authenticity check
The site welcomes you with 50 bonus credits which you can use for certain paid features
Creating an account for Twoo doesn't take too much of your time. All you have to do is provide the following details: first name, gender, birthday, city, and purpose of joining (chat, make new friends, date). This is if you choose to join using a valid email address and a nominated password. Afterward, an email will be sent to the address you provided and you just have to confirm for verification purposes.
If you want an even quicker way of signing up, you can always choose to register using your Facebook account. No worries as this is only for faster verification. The site respects your privacy and will not post anything on your Facebook account without your permission.
Upon continuing to the site, you are prompted to add a display photo. You can either get one from your Facebook or Instagram account or upload one using your webcam or your computer files. Whichever you may choose, the most important thing is that it has to abide by the site's photo standards. It must be at least 400x400 pixels and with no nudity or copyright violations. You should be the only one in the photo and your face must be recognizable.
As a token of appreciation for joining Twoo, the moderators welcome you by giving 50 bonus credits for free. You can use these credits for some special features like sending a "Super Like" to the profile of the person you fancy the most. This doubles your chances of catching his/her attention.
You can upload as many photos and videos as you want
Making your profile visible to everyone is optional
Unlocking of profiles and pictures can be done by getting verified
Majority of the members' profiles are not detailed
Each profile in Twoo is just like what you see on other dating sites – the typical "About You" box, the uploaded photos and videos, your usual basic information (which is a comprehensive list, by the way) and a summary of your activities. What's probably unique about it are the "Questions" and "Verifications" sections.
The Question portion is a list of 100 questions which you may or may not answer. It gives you the chance to discover your best possible matches. This is not to say that the site does matchmaking. You have full control over your search after all. What the Questions do is increase the number of people (who you have similar values and principles with) that show up in your search results thereby escalating the chances of finding a successful date as well.
With regard to the Verifications, this is a way for both the site and its members to know that you are authentic and genuine. There are many ways to get verified but you actually only need to comply three steps to get a verified status. Here are your options:
Add a Verified Photo – Show that you are real by uploading a photo of you doing the 'V' sign. Make sure that your face is clearly visible in the photo.
Avail of the Premium Membership – Getting a verified status is one of the perks of having a premium account.
Choose which among the following you would like to link your account: Facebook, Google, Windows Live, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram (choose three and you get a verified status).
This verification scheme is quite important. It gives you the option to make your profile visible either to only a few or none at all. You can also unlock the viewing of other users' profiles by getting verified.
Other than these two key features, everything in your Twoo profile is almost the same as with other sites. You can edit or modify to your heart's content; you can even not fill it out at all. Yet, of course, as you know, a complete profile page accompanied with a stunning display photo gets the most attention.
Being idle for 5 minutes puts you to offline status
Interact in real time with many members using the "Live" function
Twoo is basically a chat site; thus, the main mode of communication to connect with other members is via chat message. Just visit the profile of the person you want to contact and then hit the "Chat" button. A text box will be provided and you just have to type your message then send.
Sounds too good? Well, to draw the line between premium and basic accounts, the latter's chance to communicate is limited. Every day, you only get the chance to chat with members the site chooses for you. Aside from that, you can't chat a verified user unless you get verified yourself (told you, the verification process is important).
With regard to the site's search features, you can always edit your preferences either in your profile page or in the search options. While Twoo does not work as a matchmaking service, it uses a smart technology to look for those who might garner your interest. As long as you answer the Questions on your profile page, the moderators will be able to see who they should display on your search results.
The most important features of Twoo are the paid features which were already discussed above. But of course, we wouldn't leave you hanging, thinking there's no other way to enjoy the site if you're just a basic member. Here are the features you can enjoy freely:
To post a blog, you need to be a premium member. But to read one, any type of account will do.
Basically, most of the blogs on Twoo are about dating. This isn't surprising, of course. Yet, you may also find topics which are about cultural diversity, ethnic differences, and spreading positivity among others. These blogs are usually posted either by the moderators of Twoo or members who are fond of writing and sharing their thoughts to others.
As such, posting a blog can also be a great way to let other users know your taste. It might take some money, but who knows? The dollars could be worth it. Aside from catching maybe a fish, these blogs might eventually give your life a sense of purpose.
Explore & Discover
The primary activity in this feature is comparable to that of Tinder's swipe left or right function; the only difference is that you get to click "✔" or "✘" instead. Likewise, the photos of members posted are those that are newly uploaded. If you do like a photo, the owner of the photo will be informed that you liked his/her post. This is what the site calls "Discover."
In addition to Discover, you can also go "Live" under Explore. Live is the best way to interact in real time with many users at once. Those who have previously liked your profile will also be notified that you are currently broadcasting.
Most compatible to newer generation of smartphones
Our research shows that many users are using Twoo via the mobile application. For them, it is a more convenient way to use all the functionalities of the site as you can access it anytime, anywhere. We see the rationale – of course, you'd prefer to bring your phone than your laptop or desktop, right?
Note that the app on your smartphone always follows the language in your phone settings. Thus, if you want to change the language of the app, you must change the language on your phone. This is advantageous, particularly to those who are more confident in using their mother language.
According to Twoo, their developers spend most of their time to ensure that the app runs smoothly on all possible cellular phones. Even the mobile version is being checked thoroughly so that it remains compatible with all mobile browsers and operating systems. The moderators made a disclaimer that it might not work efficiently on older versions of Nokia and Blackberry phones. Thus, if you want your online chat and dating experience to be successful, you need to install it on newer versions of smartphones.
Twoo's design is neat and straightforward. It has a white background with a touch of mostly orange and some pastel colours when visiting certain pages. It's both pleasing and trendy, making it suitable for both oldies and millennials.
With regard to functionality, the site is easy to navigate. It doesn't take a tech-genius to fully understand it. You can easily find the shortcut links that take you to your desired page in an instant. You can also immediately see where you should go to accomplish any activity. The loading of pages might take some time, especially when there are a lot of users online, but overall, the site is user-friendly and easy to access.
"Was never a fan of dating sites, but was always a fan of chat sites. I've been an avid chatter since high school. Nope, not looking for anything other than friendship. Sometimes, I think that I'm not even looking for friendship. I just really want to talk to people virtually. Introvert? Maybe but not really. I've got many friends outside the digital world. Chatting just really deviates me from the stress I get in real life, especially now that I'm already a corporate slave. Good thing I found Twoo. I had discovered it while I was browsing on another chat site. Its design is appealing so I tried it. Felt like I was gonna meet real people. Nope, didn't avail of the premium account. I can already do a lot of things with the basic one. Although there are restrictions, I can still chat without paying. It's not that I chat with people all day so I think the free account's just fine. I like the mobile app, though. It's more convenient for me. I can simply chat or read the blogs whenever I'm on break at the office." - Luke, 32

As with any other dating site, getting the best out of Twoo isn't for free. While you can do a lot of things using a basic account, you still need to get a premium membership to maximise your online dating and chatting experience.
The premium package is offered in five different variations: 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months. The larger the package, the cheaper the price. You can save at most 49% if you avail of the 12 months subscription, which is their best value plan. If you stay online every day for many months, you might witness their promotions and get even larger discounts as well.
Aside from the premium package, you may also avail of the site's offered credits. These credits have a monetary value you can use to access some of the site's features and deals. Here are the benefits of having credits:
"Get seen 100x in Explore" (100 Credits) – This allows you to get featured in the Explore section a hundredfold. This way, others can easily find you and communicate with you.
"Give your inbox a liftoff" (100 Credits) – Boosting your profile is one of the easiest ways to get people to notice you. Fill your inbox with a multitude of messages by availing of this feature.
"First place is for winners" (100 Credits) – By availing of this service, you get to be on top of every set of search results for 24 hours.
"Put the Spotlight on you" (100 Credits) – Your profile photo will be featured in the Spotlight section and more members will notice you.
"Turbocharge your profile for less" (250) Credits – This is a three-in-one feature that lets you steal the Spotlight, stay on top of search results, and get featured in Explore all at once. Instead of availing each separately where you need to spend 300 credits, you have the option to just purchase this service.
"Introduce yourself to 100 men/women" (300 Credits) – This is probably the fastest way to get someone (actually, many) to notice you. Through this function, you can reach out to 100 men/women all at once.
But, hey! The paid features don't end there. Separately, you can also avail the site's individual monthly purchases. These are the ones that let you enjoy the credit features for as long as one to twelve months, depending on your type of subscription. These individual offers are:
Daily Explore – This allows your profile to be shown on top of the Explore section 100 times every day.
Daily Spotlight – With this, your name and account are automatically featured in the Spotlight each and every day.
Daily First in Search – With this subscription, your profile automatically appears on top of the search results daily.
Daily Boost – This lets you boost your profile every day to make more connections.
While the credit features and the individual purchases are enticing, we can't help but notice that they are a little impractical as you have to buy them individually. Unlike other dating sites that offer everything in one single premium package, Twoo sure knows how to strategise their business to gain profit. Well, it's really up to you which and what you would like to avail to get the best out of the site. Just be sure to have your bank account ready to support your online dating journey.
As expected from a site owned and operated by Match, Twoo is yet another dating platform that introduces a new concept in online dating. Contrary to what the public expects from chat sites, it lets us embrace the concept of dating through chatting.
What's unique about the site is its versatility – whether you're looking for a chat mate, a potential date, or just a new friend, it has got you covered. While hookups and sexual encounters are not its main purpose, there are no restrictions regarding these aspects. As long as you keep it discreet and abide by the site's terms and conditions, you won't have any problem.
You might get disappointed by the number of individual purchases that are not available even if you avail of the premium package. Yet, isn't that a better option since this gives you the chance of availing only of what you think best suits your purpose of joining? After all, the prices aren't that high and you can always cancel your subscription anytime.
In summary, Twoo might be a good option if you're looking for a chat site and a dating platform at the same time. Its uniqueness does not solely rely on its features. Offering a huge community that continues to grow each day, Twoo guarantees that you can connect and mingle with people from all walks of life. It may or may not live up to your expectations, but we believe that it's definitely worth a try.
