    I was also one of the streamers that was chosen for this experiment and since I wasn't properly notified of this HUGE change, cheering was active on my last stream and the viewers and I were confused that they could not give bits anymore, and when they tried the cheering option they did not like the experience in general and that they couldn't give a specific amount. My channel gets many of the donations threw specific bit numbers that are special to my community, such as inside jokes. Without customization, the viewers felt that "cheering" was boring and the cheering announcement in chat felt like flexing money instead of supporting the streamer (me) because it showed a clear dollar amount. Since this change, they can no longer give bits and do not want to use cheering. I don't understand how a beta should completely replace a legitimate function that is available everywhere else on the platform. Just offer bits and cheering together, put their icons next to each other and let the viewer decide which function they wish to use. In a way, this might hurt twitch more because I am now forced to use a third party to have my viewers donate through (streamelements) instead so they can activate the bit animations they like to see. Please remove this beta.
