Maybe pictures demonstrate how AMQP works better. Here is the "Hello, world"
of messages over AMQP (1 app publishes a message, another one receives it):


An example of a chat, Twitter-like service or any other broadcasting using
fanout exchange type:


If you send a message to a fanout exchange, it is delivered to all the
queues bound to it, unconditionally. Then if there are consumers
(subscribers, added with BasicConsume method) on any of these queues,
RabbitMQ will push messages out to them. If you want only some of the queues
to get the message, you need a different exchange type (if so, could you
please re-state desired outcome one more time? I am a little confused).
