The mix of creators and safety experts is meant to inform internal teams when they make community safety decisions. The council won’t make moderation calls, have access to specific cases and won’t represent the company. Twitch on an iPhone X Shear also explained just why Twitch chose the initial members it did.

Mod View also includes a dock that makes some of the other impactful actions a mod can take easier to access. Each icon can be moved as needed, and they provide a preview of stats like stream uptime. Another nifty feature is a dedicated space that allows moderators to look up a user's history on the channel, which should help them make more informed decisions. Lastly, there's a feature that displays a queue of potentially offensive messages caught by Twitch's AutoMod tool, making it easier for mods to allow those messages to post to chat or deny them altogether.

The above tools will only be as useful as the moderators using them, and whether they're effective or not will depend on the limits and rules streamers impose on their channels. Still, hard-working moderators are likely to appreciate their addition all the same.
