We know that if you are a new streamer it is very important to you that as many people as possible join your stream. You may think that the more participants, the better. Unfortunately, these participants are not always so well-intentioned. You will understand this in time. Experienced streamers are already aware of this. You will encounter many spammers and trolls over time. That’s why twitch followers only mode is very important. Twitch offers a chat restriction option called follower-only mode. In fact, this is one of the most important ways to prevent hate content, attacks, harassment and toxic content. Only your followers write to your chat, so you protect yourself from messages from users who visit your malicious stream. This means that accounts must follow the account to be able to comment.
To turn on Followers Only Mode, go to the creator dashboard on Twitch.tv. Then go to “Preferences” and click Moderation, at the bottom is the Followers Only Mode tab. This will allow any creator to turn on Followers Only Chat and even set how long the mod lasts.
Twitch also offers other restrictions for the followers only mode. When follower-only chat is enabled, you can set a time period during which a user must watch the channel before they can write to your chat. You can set this by typing /followers (duration) in your chat. You can limit the chat to a maximum of 3 months followers only mode, meaning a viewer must have followed you for three months to be able to chat.
For example, for 30 minutes; /followers 30m; for 2 hour /followers 2h; for 1 week /followers 1w; for 3 month /followers 3mo.
To turn off the followers only mode, all you have to do is write /followersoff in your chat.One of the most important features of the followers only chat mode is that it prevents bot messages. There is a chat bot feature in the viewers bot packages you see on their websites. However, in this chat bot, bot accounts do not follow your channel and therefore do not write to your chat in a followers-only mode. For this reason, we have done studies and have brought a solution to this problem for you. We’ve created a follower-only chat extension. By purchasing this add-on package as an addition to your channel, you can use your chat in followers only chat mode. Click for information about the package and price
