    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 suspect the “abuse” was some famous person or too-big-to-ignore streamer fell for a kid memer doing a “/me has donated $50,000,” thanked them profusely, then realized it was a joke, then had their lawyer or brand manager or powerful uncle or whatever make a phone call to an executive after they showed up on a dumb “sTrEaMeRs fAlL fOr FaKe dOnaTiOn PrAnK (GONE WRONG)” YouTube video.

    If bttv hasn’t already put in a setting to restore colored /me messages we should ask them for it instead; 7 months later I don’t think we’ll see it rolled back by twitch and if there is anything we all know by now it’s that twitch tells us they want to be transparent about what’s going on while being completely opaque about what’s going on. ;)

    requiring 2fa is a better idea, do you *really* want twitch holding on to a scan of your driver's license? that's one data breach away from the whole internet having a scan of your driver's license.
