Start a new topic

Topics are a lightweight tool to keep conversations organized. You should start a new topic whenever you're not replying to an existing message.

Start a new topic

  1. Click on a stream in the left sidebar.

  2. Click New topic at the bottom of the app, or type C.

Don't worry about picking the perfect topic. The first 2-4 words that come to mind are great.

Note that topics are not available for direct messages. If you find yourself wanting topics in a DM, we recommend creating a private stream.
