Along with the Twitch Affiliate sub button’s rolling out today comes a new feature for Parters. The screen grab above from TheNo1Alex states:
As a Partner in good standing with the ToS, you can add emotes without going through a manual review. Please keep in mind that the same emote rules apply.
This updated feature was definitely needed, it saves time for the broadcaster and staff member who had to approve them. Just make sure you stay within the emote rules!
