Instagram created a chat sticker for Stories that enables the people behind the Stories to invite friends and followers to participate in a group chat.

People viewing Stories can request to join group direct message conversations tied to those Stories, and all requests must be approved by the Story creators.

The group DM chat can be ended at any time.
