    On 2/2, we will turn off Chants.

    While this feature was popular, we observed negative impacts to minutes watched for significant groups of creators.

    Experiments help us test new ideas in real time, and decide what to build next. Thanks for sharing your feedback with us!

    This is an awesome feature, one of my favourite Twitch features so far. It brings out the lurkers and the usual chatters and gets them to come together in the best way possible. When used in apt moments, it can help generate really awesome content too (https://clips.twitch.tv/IcyLovelyBibimbapPRChase-TFc15-1NnFDLIUSd).

    In terms of it being "spammy" etc, it is totally up to how the streamer and mods manage it. I see a lot more pros to this feature than cons at the moment. But I think the feature can be dangerous and used wrongly if given to unprotected communities. In my opinion, Twitch could focus on creating an eligibility criteria to decide which broadcasters should have this feature. It sounds tedious, but I think it is very important to set the foundation right, to ensure nobody abuses it and we lose a feature with such amazing potential.

    TLDR, a wonderful feature, I appreciate it being an exclusive feature for select communities at the moment, and a great way to bring people together in ways we couldn't before.
