Mods Highlighting Messages
I think it would be beneficial to allow mods to highlight messages in chat without the use of channel points, to allow them to broadcast messages to the chat an unlimited amount of times. Another related idea is mods being able to pin a message at the top of chat, in a similar position to the hype train. These could work as "/broadcast (message)"
We are happy to announce that Creators and Mods can now use the "/announce" command to update chat with important info!

Thank you all as always for the feedback!
The new /announce feature covers the first part of this.
Definitely. It seems weird that mods of a channel have to spend channel points to get the attention of the streamer or chat.
As a moderator I frequently remind people in chat if we are running giveaways or not. I would like to be able to tag everyone knowing that it will popup in everyone's chat instead of it possibly being lost in chat-spam.
