Adding pronoun information to chat
For people who are trans and/or non-binary, letting streamers know your pronouns in chat so that your gendered correctly can either be awkward or difficult. An option for people to add their pronouns in brackets beside their usernames or in their profile cards in chat might help to let the streamer and/or chat know if a user feels it's important.
I really like the parentheses version of it. Pronouns next to the chatters name.

i love this idea!! i started a streaming channel that's specifically welcoming to marginalized groups (and allies!) and being able to have people display their pronouns would make it even more welcoming, i think. c:
I wish Twitch had a feature which let you set your pronouns to appear in chat.
People who have set their pronouns will have them appear next to their name in chat.
The chatter sets their pronouns in the badge-set up.
Big question is implementation.
- hovering over username will show it?
- or another line below or next to the username to say it?
- or are the gender specific signs enough?
The originator of that idea already made a quick version of the version that would show pronouns next to the chatter's username
