    Hi again all,

    We have another update regarding Twitch’s Alerts. Now, you can set up integrations with Streamlabs, Throne, Crowd Control, and StreamElements, to bring select third-party events they provide to your Activity Feed to help you recognize all the additional ways your community supports you (such as through tipping, merch purchases, etc.).

    Help highlight your community’s contributions and celebrate them all in one place, with your own flair by tapping into the customization options for your Alerts in the Creator Dashboard.

    This is just the beginning! We'd love to hear what other third party streaming tools you'd like deeper Twitch integrations with, please share them with us via link.twitch.tv/UVAlerts or http://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/924712/suggestions/47507177.

    Hello! I love the new customizable alerts boxes. However, “send preview alerts” only go through to OBS for ‘out of the box’ alerts. Any alerts where I have uploaded my own audio or image are not showing up as previews. I have sent some customized alerts through successfully before, so it is a new issue. I have tried refreshing the page cache in my browser source, deleting the entire browser source and re-copy-pasting the link in as a new source, etc. I am able to see the custom alerts on Twitch’s alert editor page, but that’s all. Is there another way to troubleshoot this?

    Hi, I know that this is a very late response, but we’re hoping to find time to address this issue later this year. There are a few steps we’ll have to take to solve this problem in a way that will work for all streamers, but we understand the severity of the issue.

    Also just wanted to add that the hossbots are run by a known bad actor who has been violating TOS and I do not support this misuse of the platform/bot tools.

    You can just ban accounts that lurk; twitch uses IRC (internet relay chat) and some info, like whether you are live, etc. is available to anyone who looks for it. Twitch’s API allows this so that extensions can function, and bots can’t access any information that is private. It is not possible to retrieve compromising or sensitive information by lurking in chat. If lurkers are spamming chat with unwanted messages, that means they aren’t lurking, and THAT is a twitch TOS violation. But please be aware that millions of people/users have access to the same info that those lurkbots do. It’s public information. Most lurkbots don’t care about that unless they are aggregating data about how many accounts are playing what games (twitch insights.net) or just lurk to passively get people to check out their channels. The /ban @username command isn’t “their” command. It’s a universal command that all streamers can use to ban users they don’t want to be in chat. Lurkbots aren’t “following” on raids, they can’t through IRC api calls. They are SIMULTANEOUSLY in many chats at once.

    I’m currently lurking to promote a promotional channel for marginalized streamers. Bots are people too.

    Live and let live.
