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.

This should be a toggle that streamers can decide for themselves to turn on or off. While it's understandable that some users do not feel comfortable with anonymous bit donations, there's plenty of people (including myself) with audience members who vastly preferred the anonymous support option, and they're all good faith users. Twitch can still keep track of anonymous donations on their end without us ever knowing who it was, but removing it outright is not the best answer for protecting people.
