1. A method for delivering notifications to users of a messaging platform, the method comprising:
receiving, by a server, a mention from a user of a messaging platform, the mention being directed to a specific context of users;
dynamically determining, by the server, a subset of users from the specific context of users such that each user of the subset of users is more likely to engage with a notification associated with the mention than users of the specific context outside of the subset of users;
sending, by the server, the notification associated with the mention to only the subset of users from the specific context of users; and
responsive to expiration of an iteration timer prior to receiving a response to the notification:
determining that a probability of receiving the response is at least a lower threshold value,
starting the iteration timer by the server,
determining one or more additional users to add to the subset of users, and
sending, by the server, the notification to the one or more additional users of the subset of users.
