FWIW, I won't be switching to gitter or slack - I find the push notifications and always-on experience exhausting. It gets in the way of thinking or doing anything useful. I often leave my phone in priority-only mode to shut facebook and twitter and such things up for hours - or days - at a time.
If you read my blog https://glyph.twistedmatrix.com/, you'll know this already – I also find Slack tiring in exactly this way. I acknowledge the usability benefits over IRC, but the effect of those benefits is mostly just prompting me to spend more time staring at chat. Which is not what I want to be doing.
