    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.

    No updates for months despite this still being actively added to; So much for listening and being transparent.

    Clearly the change to /me has drawn the ire of far more people than it has pleased, and if the radio silence over a change so trivial to reverse tells us anything, it’s this: “Twitch just doesn’t care”.

    This is, in my opinion, a backwards step that I haven't seen a single person ask for.

    Personally I had my bot configured with all responses and timers using the /me command because it made the bot messages stand out in chat and made it easier to pick out actual user messages while playing.
