Pinned Cheers Updates: Thanks, Twitch Community!

Wow, it seems like just yesterday we released Pinned Cheers into the wild… Oh wait, that was yesterday! Since then, many of you have tried it and given us your thoughts. Thank you!

We loved your suggestions so much we’ve been working at supersonic speed to make the best ones a reality asap. And now we get to announce some improvements to the experience that we’ll be releasing today and tomorrow. Here’s what’s coming:

Min to Pin for the Win!

Hands down, one of the most requested features was a setting for minimum Bits required to pin a Cheer. Coming right up! Channel owners will be able to set this in their dashboard in the Partner Settings tab, under Cheer > Pinned Cheering Settings.

Improved UI to Expand and Collapse Pinned Cheers

Want to see more of what a Pinned Cheer says? Want to collapse it so you can see more of chat? Now you have control with the little expando/collapso arrow on the bottom right of the Pinned Cheer.

Unpin API: You Can Have it Your Way!

Expected to be released tomorrow, our new Unpin API will give channel owners the freedom to decide why, how and when a Cheer should be unpinned and automate it. By leveraging third party tools like bots programmed to use this API, channel owners and moderators will be able to set a maximum time for a Pinned Cheer, or set rules around content for Pinned Cheers. It’s up to you.

Thanks for your response to this feature. Keep the great ideas coming here. We are looking forward to the creativity of our community to find ways to make Pinned Cheers even more exciting.
