Hey all! Thanks for this thread. We recently deprecated anonymous Cheering after we discovered it was being abused. While we understand some viewers prefer not being recognized for Cheering, we made this change to ensure a safer experience for those who were negatively impacted.
We’ve also heard your concerns on what this means for the future of Bits. This deprecation is not related to any plans to limit Cheering with Bits on Twitch, and is solely focused on providing a safer experience for our community.

[MERGED] Bring back colored /me chat messages + Update the /me command to color chat messages FOR MODS/BROADCASTER ROLES ONLY5,388 votes655 comments · Chat » Stream Chat · Admin →Partial Release · AdminTwitch (Admin, Twitch) responded
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.

Why not offer streamers, and maybe viewers alike, the choice if they want a coloured or italics and uncoloured /me-message showing up?
This forced at the moment change does more damage than good.
Yes, it may help people who are new to Twitch and not aware of troll-behaviour and either don't fully understand yet how Twitch works or don't trust their bots or alerts (or don't have some yet). And there are people who prefer text without colours.
But it makes it harder to read chat for many people, it's confusing for mods and streamers alike, it makes raids less fun and probably more annoying etc. Most reasons have already been mentioned in this thread.
Simply give us a choice and everyone will be happy - and maybe figure out a better and more efficient way to deal with trolls.
Give streamers the option to opt out if they feel the need to, but make it so they're also free to re-enable it, don't make it a one time on-off thing.
