Twitch Adds New Microtransaction Emotes

Something new is coming to the Twitch chat soon. "Cheering is a new way to show support for streamers and celebrate the moments you love with the community," according to the Twitch blog post. "A Cheer is a chat message that uses Bits, which are evolving animated emotes that you can buy." You can purchase Bits using Amazon Payments, here’s  how much it costs: 
  • 100 Bits - $1.40
  • 500 - $7.00
  • 1,500 - $19.95
  • 5,000 - $64.40
  • 10,000 - $126.00
  • 25,000 - $306.00

The more Bits you use, the bigger the Cheer. You also earn Cheer Chat Badges the more you do it. Cheering is launching in beta today for a number of participating channels, the full list of which can be found on Twitch's announcement. What do you think of these new microtransaction emotes ?
