Send a story message to the chat room. Story messages are generally used for sending long-format chat messages. They are displayed in the group chat client as a one-line message, on which the title of the story appears as a clickable link. When selected, the entire content of the message is displayed in a dialog box. Users must first successfully join a chat room to initiate the session before a message can be sent.
