How do you start chants?

Sigh loudly, with your voice open. Chant quietly, almost like you can redirect the sound to your own heart and let it flow from there. Chant silently, internally, so quietly that your attention can only stay with the mantra.

How do you start the chant on twitch? It will work like this: the content creator or chat moderator can set the message to sing by typing the /chant command. The message will appear privately to the audience as a limited time suggestion that allows them to copy and paste the message with one click on the âchantâ button.
