Streamers with a stream deck have the ability to create a panic button that will do a slew of things. Turning on sub mode, slowing chat, clearing chat, setting a stream marker, capturing a clip for documentation.
What if an sos command was created to do that for streamers that don't have the ability to have a stream deck?
Currently the answer is to end stream until the hate raid ends. But what isn't being realized is that the streamer ending the stream is giving the hate raiders exactly what they want. With a command that controls tools twitch has already given us (stream marker, slow chat) it puts us back in control. Even a moderator can throw that command in chat and push forward more momentum, showing these hate raids that we are in control of our own stream.
It's crazy that Streamlabs has implemented a panic button but Twitch itself has not.
From an outside perspective, it appears that third party programs and streaming tool providers are doing much more than Twitch itself, the platform where these raids are prevalent, to combat this problem and help the content creators navigate and protect themselves.
It's not a good look. Even if Twitch is working on something, they have not spoken on it nor are they really having visible discussions on the matter and it really feels like Twitch doesn't care and I'm sure that's not the case.
Even implementing something simple as this would be huge for novice streamers who are just as vulnerable as veterans. Please consider tools like this for the human beings on your platform who are being harassed with increasing frequency.
It would be nice if Editors for the streamer(s) can add that in the Stream manager as a quick button to press
