U.S. Account - Please provide the ability to collapse and expand in-chat integrations.

Use Case: I share a giphy (/giphy) and want to be able to collapse it after we've had a few laughs so that its not distracting. This allows for the fun, collaborative environment, while minimizing distractions from those who would rather not participate. This is built into Slack's features.

The ability to collapse images in the stream, as well as sections in the shelf (right pane) is coming on 5/29!

Hi Team Glip! We are dying to use Glip more, but we need this collapse feature for long messages, such as those used with [code]. Of less importance would be a button to click when inserting code, and an increase to the total amount of lines we're able to post.

Posting huge snippets to chat that fill up the screen is distracting, as GIFs can be, and this is our primary need to moving to Glip over Slack.

Thank you for all you do!

EDIT: Feel free to move this to a separate "idea" post. I figured I would post this as a reply here since the functionality would be very similar, with a small preview of a code snippet posted to chat instead of the entirety of the message.
