Some people might be into noodle fingers though. D:
Maybe she just has a brutal hyperextension and double joints.

Which emotes feature her noodle fingers? I would really like to see it. But maybe they did it to stop the proon, dunno, or for her to be seen as "creepy" or something.

oh god true .-.
It may just be the overwatch animation style, like one of d.va's highlights makes her leg be displaced completely from her body when you go frame by frame.

Maybe, but you also see her modifying her arm in one of her sprays, tho that may just be for her "Demon Powers"...but maybe that involved some finger joint modification....??
She also added shoe spikes on top. She stabs herself when she uses her sit emote

She did it just to make her wave extra spooky.

My hands actually bend like that, and I used to terrorize others by demonstrating why overextension was important for rigging. It makes for pleasant arcs in animation, even if it looks terrifying when not in motion.

If you look closely, Sombra, Lucio, D.Va, and Junkrat have similar extension in their fingers during greetings. Moira's hand just moves slowly enough to be much more noticeable.
I think its the same science that gives McCree rubberarm, rubberface, and Reinhardt rubberneck - that is, it is designed to exaggerate and communicate movement and elasticity.

widows spikey hair ponytail on her limited game release skin pokes her every time she moves
I think everything about Moira is supposed to be "not quite right". Helps the creepy vibe
Imagine getting a handie from her watery noodle fingers. It'd be like having sex with a silk cushion.
