The Input box consists of three main sections. The first is an input box, and the second is a list of input options. The third is the Send button. Only the input box is required to be shown. The other two sections may be wholly removed for a cleaner interface.
The Input box is located right below the Chat pane. In Input Box is located right above the input options toolbar. The send button is on the right, and takes up both rows of the input box.
The input box is the place where both content and commands are placed.
Commands are started with a backslash (/) followed by the name followed by parameters, which are either optional or required. Twitter will not accept commands.
Content starts with any other character. Also, if a line starts with a double-backslash (//), that line will be treated as content with the first character as a backslash. This is an escape command that works on both Twitter and IRC tabs.

The send button sends whatever content or command is in the input box.
