Build a thread system similar to Twist
As plenty of companies around there we find Slack/Mattermost a bit too chatty at times. More importantly, it sometimes makes it really hard to follow discussion around a specific topic. For now we have two choices :
- Create a specific channel around a topic. But you can start to have a lot of channels really fast
- Use "threads". But to be frank threads implementation is really lacking and not practical for complex discussions
A new player,https://twistapp.com/, has an interesting take on this problem. Real time channels still exists, but there is another category of channels, entirely based on threads.
It would be great to see something similar in Twist. A Twist thread is basically a discussion channel focused on 1 topic. The organisation of threads inside big "thread groups" is sweet.

I would like to see something like this also. There is another chat app, https://zulipchat.com/, does a great job of this ... a stream (channel) has a list of "topics" (like the subject line of email) ... I tried it out, now I can't get it out of my head!!
Would love to see a better thread system. It's all so cluttered and messy at the moment

+1 Getting a list of threads global or per channel or both and searchable !
+1 essentially "Threaded Channels"
