When following this link (or the correct one, the two above have been obfuscated) I get taken directly to the specific conversation thread in the room that hosts it.
That link I got from a notification because someone pinged me, and I wasn't present, so it ended up in my email inbox.

If I right-click the conversation thread "box" and select Inspect (this is Google Chrome), I get to a div, if I open this div and go to the immediate child div, it has an attribute called "data-id" with the ID I require.
So, as an example, if I were to do this with the url in the second example above, I would see:
