Here are the currently available emotes for each subscription tier of the HyperTextHero Twitch channel. These are work-in-progress and may change, and more will be added as we unlock them on our haphazard, hopeful journey to Twitch Partner level.

To use them, subscribe to my channel, then type a colon (:) followed by the highlighted words matching the emote you would like to use in Twitch chat.

For example, typing :hypert23Tree will make A drawing of a tree. appear on chat and at a random spot overlayed on top of the stream video, thanks to StreamElements.
