[Experiment] “When did I get the most reactions in chat?” Panel in Stream Summary
We’re experimenting with a new way to show creators insights about their chat performance. Users with access to the experiment will see a new “When did I get the most reactions in chat?” panel on their Stream Summary page. Creators can quickly identify spikes and dips in engagement and watch the correlating time stamp of the VOD to understand what may have caused those fluctuations. We hope this tool helps creators better understand behaviors that engage their community and spot opportunities to drive more magic in chat.
If you have any further questions or concerns on this please make sure to look through our help article (https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/stream-summary#experiment) We look forward to hearing your feedback about how we can improve this feature!
Things this experiment can do to be better: Be removed from the platform as it is a waste of resources for a potentially large portion of the streamer base.
Specifically, this "most reactions in chat" function has only a few good ways to make use of its functions: If you're a multi-game-per-stream streamer, you can use it to see activity per game on a stream; if you're playing something where there's a natural burst of content (FPSs with kill streaks, puzzle games) that would coincide with a burst of reactions... there's also the bad of "this reminds smaller streamers that they're small streamers with (nearly) dead chats because they only get a small handful of people who quietly enjoy their stream"... not every game out there's gonna be 100s of people in chat all the time talking about everything going on, sometimes it's boring *** Eye-Spys and the single player version of a D&D campaign in all its slow "6 heroes and 53 trash enemies at the start of the turn" glory.
