Define Discord Slow Mode

As the name speaks for itself, Discord Slow Mode is one of the profound features in Discord that allows the user to slow down his operations without rushing into one. A cooler timer can be set by the user. The moment he enables the Discord Slow mode, he gets restricted with his activities. A user can never jump to a great amount of content. 

With Discord Slow Mode, the user gets control over his text channels. Suppose when people type and type continuously after every word. This literally gets on our nerves sometimes. However, the moment a user enables Discord Slow Down, he can control the channel conveniently. This restricts the number of messages which a user sends to the channel as per the cooling time.
