Tags and mentions

Click on any tag to search. All tags link to search, allowing you to quickly see other messages with the same tag.
Reply to specific messages. This will turn both your reply and the original message into a conversation thread, as indicated by a colored speech bubble next to both messages. To participate in a thread, just click on the speech bubble to the left of the message, and reply.
