Twitch Introduces AutoMod – Your Chat Shield

Twitch has announced the latest add-on to the ever-growing chat system: AutoMod.

AutoMod acts as an automatic chat filter, removing user’s messages before they are sent based on the configuration an individual streamer chooses to have, similar to built-in features with chat bots such as Nightbot.

Here’s how it works. Streamers can configure AutoMod by selecting one of four levels. These levels affect how aggressively AutoMod holds back messages under four categories: identity, sexual language, aggressive speech, and profanity.

When AutoMod flags a message, it lets the original sender know that moderators will review the message’s content before it’s sent to chat. Meanwhile the message is shown to moderators, giving them a chance to accept or reject the message.

Protect your chat with AutoMod now, head to your settings page and select a moderation level.
