Discord is a social media site you get to engage with people through texts.
It is difficult to convey your emotion and gravitas through the text, emoticons can do that work but they miss out on subtlety and are not professional. Hence while writing the texts we need a certain type of formatting. In this article, we will learn how to bold, Italic, and strike through a text.

- There should not be any space between the “**” and the words you want to bold.
- To bold a sentence use type “**” before starting the sentence and again type “**” after finishing the sentence.
For example: **This is discord** it will appear as This is discord in the text message.
