Ability to add 'Link Name' when adding a URL to a Chatter Post in Lightning


In Chatter Lightning, Link is no longer available like it is in Classic.
We can add URLs in a Chatter Post but are not able to overwrite the URL with a Link Name like we can in Classic. As a result, the hyperlink can be fairly long and not descriptive. 

Please add this functionality in Lightning either by making the Link option available again with the Link Name functionality. 
Or allow users to add a Link Name when adding a URL to a Chatter Post.
