The thread_broadcast message subtype is sent when a user or bot user has indicated their reply should be broadcast to the whole channel.

It's a pointer or reference to the actual thread and is meant more to be informational than to fully describe the message. The reference cannot contain attachments or message buttons.

The message includes a root field with a modified form of the original message in the thread, meant for use in rendering by Slack client applications.

When an event occurs, we will send an HTTP POST request to your Request URL. The outer payload is uniform across all Events API methods, and contains fields like team_id and event. Learn more
