I thought a chat button on a user's profile who you follow would be handy.
Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
As a user of the dev.to community, I would like a call to action on the profile of someone I follow, to facilitate beginning/continuing a conversation with them.
Describe the solution you'd like
The motivation for this is quick access to starting a conversation with someone if you follow them and happen to be on their profile. As well, someone with more than a handful of followers is currently unable to find a user easily in dev connect.
To compliment this story, consider a lookup field on the dev connect page so a user could filter who they're looking for quickly. Also, as shown in the picture, I'd make the "Following" button a less prominent action than the "Chat" button. Also, I'm not sure about the wording "Chat"
Describe alternatives you've considered

This makes sense. I'm going to instruct @mariocsee
