Sorry for the delay getting the newsletter out this week, I was traveling! Of course, the huge news recently is the launch of threads in Slack – we’ve been waiting to see how they’d implement them, and so far I’m pretty happy with the results! I’ve included both the Slack HQ announcement as well as the Platform blog’s post, since they both offer up slightly different perspectives. 
Do you think threads in Slack will have a big impact on how bots work on the platform? Any interesting ways you think you could take advantage of them? Let us know by replying back to this newsletter, and I’ll include your responses next week!
