TWiki is a flexible, powerful, and easy to use enterprise wiki, enterprise collaboration platform, and knowledge management system. It is a Structured Wiki, typically used to run a project development space, a document management system, a knowledge base, or any other groupware tool, on an intranet or on the Internet. Web content can be created collaboratively by using just a browser. Users without programming skills can create web applications. Developers can extend the functionality of TWiki with Plugins. TWiki fosters information flow within an organization, lets distributed teams work together seamlessly and productively, and eliminates the one-webmaster syndrome of outdated intranet content.

TWiki.org has now over 400 extensions available for download. TWiki is used by millions of users and is installed in tens of thousands of companies, including the majority of the Fortune 500.
