    Hey all – thank you so much for all of your feedback around this change. We understand that this was a feature that many of you used in various situations, including the ability for Moderators to highlight or distinguish messages in Chat, and we agree that is important. We are listening to your ideas and feedback in this area – stay tuned for updates!

    To provide context as to why we’ve made the decision to remove the original functionality of the /me command, we wanted to address the way this feature was being used to perpetrate abuse against members of our community. While we recognize this change is frustrating for some, the safety of our community remains our top priority.

    I've been staying tuned for 4 months and now I'm giving up. Thankfully, we have third party add-ons like FFZ and BTTV that care about user experience.

    I spent about 10 hours writing a bot that draws an ASCII snake in chat. It utilizes Bits and Channel Points to customize colors. Twitch should allow their creators to enrich their platform, rather than buckle under complainers. Removing the /me command was about the laziest way to handle any apparent issues with it.
