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.

I was excited when I read this, but in testing I am a little disappointed. This does add a nice little effect that you can see in chat but if you use an IRC chat client it doesn't show the message that was posted at all and instead a blank line.
I agree it should be an option left to the streamer to adjust, it can be disabled by default to help address the edge cases of people getting dupedPhat32 supported this idea ·
