It depends who you ask, lots of people actually do not care or like
threads the way they are implemented in Slack. This is basically a
place where conversation just get buried.
+2, one for each account. I find the threads hard to use/follow in
realtime, and apparently very hard to get back to in archive if you
don't know a precise search term.

IRC did not have threads,
yet it is still there after almost 30 years.
+1 for mentioning IRC too. After trying Slack, I personally find IRC
more comfortable. I actually came to appreciate its liteweight design
as very smart and deliberate, emphasizing the core feature - quick
chat, and leaving the rest to more tangible communication methods, like
email.
