Now Cheer with Bits! A Way to Support your Favorite Twitch Affiliates & Partners

I am officially a Twitch Affiliate! Yay! Thank you to everyone who watches and follows, I couldn't have done it without you. As an Affiliate, viewers now have the ability to cheer for me with Bits directly from chat.

What are Bits & Cheering?

Cheering is a way to show support for your favorite Twitch streamers (any Twitch Affiliate or Partner) and celebrate the moments you love with the community, all right in chat. A Cheer is a chat message that uses Bits, which are evolving animated Emoticons that you can buy or earn. Bit Emoticons can be used one by one, all at once, or anywhere in between. Using many at once shows more support and creates cooler Emoticons! You can also use your Bits on ANY Affiliate or Partner channel across Twitch.

What are Cheer Chat Badges?

Cheering shows your support, and as you Cheer in a channel, you earn Cheer Chat Badges for that channel so that your support is recognized. Your Cheer Chat Badge lasts indefinitely but will only appear in the channel where you earned it. Cheer Chat Badges represent the total number of Bits you have used to Cheer in that channel.
