If you’ve ever seen a popular Twitch streamer’s stream, then you might see how crazy the chat can get. This is because users are essentially talking with the steamer and each other in real-time, so messages fly by really quickly. This means that if your questions and replies could get lost if you aren’t fast enough.
If that has been a problem for you in the past, then you’ll be pleased to learn that Twitch has announced that they are finally introducing threaded replies. Basically this means that whenever you reply to a chat, it will sit nestled in its own thread so that it doesn’t get lost and you or other people can reply to it easily.
Chat Replies help you keep the conversation going, even when chat is going off.

That being said, interestingly enough the comments on Twitch’s Twitter announcement doesn’t seem to be particularly positive. Most users think that Twitch chat is almost impossible to keep up with and the addition of threaded replies will probably not solve it. However, whether or not it is helpful remains to be seen but at the very least it gives users more options.
Twitch has also added various keyboard shortcuts that users can use to use the chat replies feature on its website, so if you’re interested in checking out the feature, you can head on over to Twitch’s support page for the details.
