Will there ever be one of these with actual chat functionality? There is no reason why I shouldn't be able to chat. Why would anyone make something that only receives messages and doesn't allow replies? I makes sense if you are a streamer but not everyone is a streamer.
How, unbelievably, annoying.

In case someone comes across this from Google, yes you can actually chat with this.

Suggestion: irc.chat.twitch.tv port 6697 with an encrypted connection instead of plaintext
