A way for mods/streamers to disable chat
Recently, a streamer I moderate got spam botted, we did our best to disable chat to prevent it any further (Enabling emote only, follow only at the max time, and slow mode at the max time) but still couldn't stop them. I think it would be really good for twitch to add a "Disable chat" option for mods and streamers alike.
Edit: Fixed some grammar/spelling errors to make it easier to understand
I second this
The ability to fully lock down chat should have been a feature from the very beginning. If we are responsible for our chatroom then we should at least have the keys to manage it properly.
Adding a way to disable chat helps with people who bot others channels.
This is a great feature to implement to help moderators/streamers control the chat in a faster and easier way.
