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.

No compelling reason to remove this functionality. You keep removing features in the service of nothing while setting the ads dial to 11. It's like y'all forgot what happened with Digg, and why Reddit ate their lunch. This only serves to penalize large donors and thereby reduce your own profits as a company. If I can donate to my local galleries, public spaces or universities anonymously IRL, what's the hang up here?
Agreed. I sub to many Twitch streamers, and it's a constant battle to try to sort and find an emote I have in mind. It doesn't help that on iOS and Desktop, I am presented with different sorting. iOS needs a search function for emotes. Also, on my Apple TV, for whatever reason on your tvOS client, it will not show me the emotes for the channel I am on, only the others I am subbed to. Weird, inconsistent and frustrating as an end user.
