make threads collapsible
A toggle option so that threads appear as "N comments" and open in the side-panel, so they do not interrupt the main flow of the channel, and you can follow each thread mode easily.
Jean Zundel commented
Having the thread's comments indiscriminately copied into the channel degrades the signal-to-noise ratio. Users should be able to start a small off-topic conversation, one that doesn't deserve to move to another channel, while others keep focused on the subject matter.
Francois Masurel commented
Definitely a must have. But the user should be able to ask for display in the main thread if wanted.

I think it's an interesting idea but I actually like how Mattermost does it right now. it keeps responses from getting totally ignored on busy channels, like I've watched happen on some Slack servers I'm a member of.
Yes !! Just like Slack actually ;) https://slackhq.com/threaded-messaging-comes-to-slack-417ffba054bd
