If we’ve learned anything from experiments like Twitch Plays Pokemon, it’s that a large part of the streaming site’s success lies on the enthusiasm of its community. Twitch viewers don’t just watch streams, they participate by flooding their favorite streamers chatbox with memes, emoji and a never-ending march of inside jokes. When the company launched the Twitch Uploads beta, the company encountered a problem: there’s no chatroom for pre-recorded videos. Today, Twitch is taking steps to fix that, introducing a chat mode for uploaded content that locks messages to specific moments in the video.
