Slack links are opening in browser.

Issue Summary:

On January 10, 2020 at 4:00 p.m. PST, we deployed a change that altered how external links were being handled. This had the unintended affect of causing Slack message links to open in web browsers. We removed this change, which restored intended behavior, and an all-clear was called on January 12, 2020 at 6:54 p.m. PST.

Slack links should open in app again as expected after reloading (CTRL/⌘ + R). Thanks again for hanging tight!

7:04 PM PST

We're investigating reports of Slack links not opening in app. (Users are being redirected to their web browser first.) We will have more information shortly. Thank you for your patience.
