Profile option for emergency contact field/command for streamers/mods
There have been many times where a streamer has had some sort of emergency while live streaming. The viewers are left confused, panicked, and have no way to help. Situations such as seizures, embolisms/DVT, stroke (which is a real threat for people sitting down all day), and even non-medical emergencies such as someone breaking into their house.
As an epileptic myself, having a seizure on stream is one of my biggest fears. I am not always home with someone else. If I had a medical emergency while streamer, there would be nothing anyone could do or at least not very quickly.
Please implement a private(!) user profile field where streamers have the option to list an emergency contact and/or address in case of emergency. In the case of an emergency, when someone does call the police, I would hope that they can somehow get in contact with Twitch and cooperate to find the emergency contact and send help. Either that or create a command available to moderators of that channel to alert Twitch of an emergency. The contact/address would obviously be private to prevent raiding and harassment.
/emergency was apparently a thing, but isn't anymore (I'm sure because people misused it), but please bring back a similar command that is limited to moderators to make streamers safer.

create a way for mods or chat to get help to a streamer if they are suffering from a medical emergency. As someone who had their life saved by twitch chat recently i can't tell you how much this would be appreciated. I live with epilepsy and during my stream the other day I suffered a grand mal seizure. luckily people in chat where able to get in touch with my wife and emergency services to send help to me. without them i very well could have died. I am so thankful for the platform twitch provides and wish that there was some sort of way to integrate this into every stream.
