Thank you for the patience with us on this. This has been one of the most popular ideas on UserVoice and we definitely heard your feedback.
Today we launched /announcement for mods and streamers. Announcements can be used in chat to highlight a message and are available in 4 different colors along with the channel accent color. Because this is only part of the ask of this idea we are setting this idea to partial release so the community can continue to leave feedback on this.Soresire supported this idea ·

As a mod I use the full colored /me messages to draw attention to important announcements. I don't think I've seen it misused at all (or if I did it was so long ago and so infrequent that I just can't remember any misuse.
Italics doesn't stand out enough and now I'm suppose to waste my channel points for the highlight message redemption every time I need to announce something to chat? Come on Twitch. I have never heard anyone complain about the colors.
