Help! Manual commands to nightbot without twitch chat seeing your command?

I was watching a streamer and they seemed to have typed in a command (ex. !steam) and their steam name appeared with nightbot, but the actual broadcaster’s command didn’t appear on the chat. How can I go about doing that? I’ve tried researching how to hide your comments in the chat, but no solution. Basically, how am I able to communicate with nightbot and manually type a command in without anyone seeing the command itself? Thanks!

It isn’t really possible to trigger a twitch command without the command showing up in twitch. So i am not sure what exactly you saw, perhaps a timer went off at a funny time?

They were probably using a timer which are automatic commands.
