When you see a message, even your own, you can simply reply to that post to instantly create a threaded discussion. Anyone can choose to reply to any message within the thread or they can choose the View Thread option and reply at the bottom. In the main chat history panel, each thread will be linked with a line from one profile photo to another showing that the replies are all part of the same continuous threaded discussion.

As messages continue to be added to the main chat history the threaded discussion can still continue. The thread line between one profile photo to another will display continued using dots rather than a solid line showing there are other messages in between. When the discussion is resumed, by a new reply or addition to the Thread panel, the original topic message will be referenced followed by any new additions to the thread.
