When it comes to live streaming, Twitch takes the battle. It is the best streaming platform for gamers or musicians. I have been using Twitch for about two years now, and I loved its diversity when it comes to content. You can find stream your live battle in a game, take part in an online-concert, and even teach others. The only thing that I don’t appreciate much about Twitch is its tricky menu and options. It can lead to confusion and distraction to newcomers to this site.
As on any social media platform, popularity is based on how much followers you get. But, unlike other sites that give a hands-on experience to see followers or your friends (in the case of Facebook), Twitch has a somewhat vague menu, and you may not get to see who follows you right away. I am writing this article particularly for people who cannot view their followers on Twitch, and for those who can view their followers, I have added some new features that you might not be able to discover and many new tricks.
How To See Your Twitch Followers On Android & IPhone Devices:
The app Twitch is very handy and allows you to stream right from the camera of mobile devices. The app was released to use in 2016, five years after the site’s official release (Twitch was launched on June 6, 2011). Primarily app allowed you to view your favorite content on mobile screens, but then developers put in the option to record. Now, you can view as well as display content via the twitch app. The website offers more features than a mobile app but viewing your followers is common on both streaming platforms.

Why is it important to view your number of followers on Twitch?
If you are a celebrity on Twitch with thousands of followers, then you may not know who personally follows you. For these celebrities, the number of followers is important in taking note of many followers to win the popularity battles. Ninja is a channel that solely takes off the battle with 16.1 Million followers on Twitch. There is a close fight between the count of followers on Twitch; so, you must know how many people follow you!
But on the other hand, if you are an individual who just started a channel on Twitch. Then, you must treat your limited followers to attain more. So, content creators on Twitch must know the number of followers and the faces of followers who follow him and then treat them with care to attain more.
As a starter, you cannot afford to just use the mobile app as a website that gives so many extra features that can be used to attain more interest and grow your circle on Twitch. So, I will always recommend anyone who wants to grow more followers on Twitch to use the website version. Sometimes, viewing your followers gives you information about which person stopped following you, and this can help you note down your audience and grow it in this regard.
Followers are usually classified into two categories, named “Organic” and “Paid.” Organic followers are usually hard to get and increase slowly based on your content and videos. Usually, if you want to show off or have a company, gaining Paid Followers is beneficial.
One method to gain inorganic followers is by using bots. This method is usually discouraged in general and may not give you the type of audience you want. In most cases, Twitch itself will recognize the paid followers and may block your account for some time. So, making quality content is the only resort to attain followers.
Many sites offer you to buy real followers, and this method is legitimate as it just increases your stream. This method includes displaying your ads and may help you in this regard. So, gaining real followers by paying is good but not better than making content that attracts more followers.
How to increase your audience on Twitch
This is an era of selfishness, and everyone is busy in their own life. No one will ever give time to time-wasting things. So, getting more followers and making them stick to your channel can only be possible if you make quality content. As thousands of streamers are available on Twitch, to shine in so many names can only be possible with professionally made videos. Your videos must have better editing and should be shot with precision. If you are just streaming the games online, then your audio quality is the main thing of concern. You must use a high-quality mic that offers a high-end experience.
Sharing is the key to the number of followers. You must have to increase your viewership on Twitch to get your follower’s bar to rise. Firstly, make your content shared on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other social media platforms. Ask your friends to share your videos. People may visit your profile on Twitch by viewing your videos on other platforms. Then, YouTube is another platform in this regard; if you have a good following on YouTube, you can share your video on YouTube and ask your followers to follow you on Twitch. In my experience of using this app, I have noted that every content gets the audience it deserves. If you are making good quality videos, then you will get the fruit of your hard work.
How to make money with Twitch
Twitch pays its streamers who help other people to stick to their website. This is done based on your followers. Shroud is a channel on Twitch that earns about $10000 just for their followers. If you have a viewership of 10000 people daily, then you can easily earn $1000 per month on Twitch.
The first thing in the process of earning is the monetization of your channel. After 50 followers, your account will be affiliated with Twitch, and you can start earning. Other ways of earning are sponsorship of products. Many brands pay channels to display the ads of their channel. Then, you can also start your affiliation with some stores online. And finally, there are different tournaments held between gamers on Twitch, and they pay a great deal to the winners. These are some common methods that can help you make money with Twitch. And believe me, some people do this like a business and have become rich just by using Twitch.
Making money also introduces the barrier you have to cross, which is officially 50 followers but having about 1000 followers will start making some minute amount. About 30k followers will serve you to make a handsome amount with Twitch. Still, there is no barrier to the number of followers, and you must always strive to increase your streaming audience and increase your income.
Should you follow your followers?
It is not necessary nor forbidden. If your followers are also making quality stuff that you feel interested in, you may follow them. You must make your Twitch streaming relevant to you and follow those you feel attracted to personally. This will increase your interest in the app and may help you in achieving great pursuits.
