    Hi, thanks for flagging this and sharing your suggestion.

    We share and understand your concerns about how the intentional, repeated misuse of tags can undermine the purpose of the tags product itself.  Tags are an important discoverability feature for communities, and a powerful way for all Creators—but especially those that are underrepresented—to express their personal identity and creative vision for their content.

    We also do not feel Twitch should be the judge of Creators’ personal or creative identity, so we typically only enforce against the misuse of tags when it is associated with other behavior that violates our Community Guidelines such as hateful conduct or harassment.

    That said, as the VTuber community’s experience demonstrates, there are limitations to this approach and we are actively investigating additional steps we can take to protect and improve the integrity of the tags feature at scale, without infringing on good faith Creators’ personal choice…

    My only thing to add is that tagging should have clear definitions along with enforcement

    For example: Could I use the vtuber tag if Im doing a collab with a vtuber?
    What is twitch's definition of a vtuber?
    What if we are discussing vtubers?
    What if we are watching vtuber content?
    Discrepancies can leave it open for interpretation.

    The amount of tags that can be used is also limited, So it should be a fairly easy fix on twitch's part to give us more clarity.

    But yeah this has been going on for a while, Tag abuse isn't a meta if it hurts other creators directly.
