    The whisper system in Twitch chat is unfortunately not without some issues. I frequently whisper friends on Twitch and when the number of messages becomes more that one or two, the system gets buggy. It will randomly scroll you back to messages that had been sent sometime in the past. It will stop you from sending messages. It has on occasion, sent a message and then not posted, or posted it at some other random interval. On occasion, a msg from before will resend itself. These issues cause a great deal of frustration and confusion. While discussing it with a friend, we hypothesized that the system is not meant to hold a large number of messages. Perhaps by having the ability to purge whisper history, it will cut down on the number of bugs. It will also leave people feeling less vulnerable to the possibility of others gaining access to their information. (In addition, the whisper msg system may need to be overhauled.)
