Make the #_announcements channel on Slack accessible to those who aren't on Slack

One of our goals is for people to have full access to YPC communications even if they’re not on Slack. Instead, we want everyone to be able to interact 100% through email if they wanted to.

Our #_announcements channel in Slack is particularly important because the biggest news goes there.

I set up a Zap that will post to the https://hub.youthpowercoalition.org/t/announcements-auto-posted-from-slack/638 topic whenever a new message is posted to the Slack channel.

Things I’m wondering:

Figure out how to have Slack messages post to a new topic and threaded messages post as replies to the original topic
Figure out how to have Slack messages post into an existing topic while threaded messages are not
Figure out how to have Slack messages post into an existing topic and threaded messages quote the original message

I just discovered a Slack setting that could help!!
