    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.

    REVERSE this decision please and give Twitch users an option to disable and enable the /me so that trolls don't use it. The original /me color wasn't being used to perpetrate abuse against members in your community, and PLEASE stop making those types of changes in the future that DOESN'T please the entire Twitch community as no one has asked you to change it into an italic feature. Please, please, PLEASE bring back the original /me but again, WITH an option for us users to disable AND enable.
