Why Should You Have a Suggested Streamers List?

There are many benefits to having this list as a part of your Twitch account.

Why Should You Have a Suggested Streamers List


When you stream regularly and have an audience that follows your games (or any other content you are offering), building a community entails more than just having people stick to your channel exclusively.

Viewers want to watch a few streamers, so you can take advantage of that and create a community where you and your viewers watch similar channels and bond even more.


Connecting with other Twitch streamers is very beneficial for your personal brand. Many co-streamers are open to suggesting your channel in return, which can get you a lot of new audiences.

And partnering with other gamers will certainly enrich your status and brand. And you may end up in an awesome Twitch team.

What Is a Twitch Team?

A Twitch team consists of a number of streamers who are there for each other to collaborate and boost viewership. New friends are made in this way, not only in the virtual world but in real life as well.

The members of a group usually have similar interests and content – it may include similar topics in your content or the games you play.

Members of a Twitch team usually suggest each other on their profiles, host, and raid each other’s streams.

Only a Twitch partner can create a team, but anyone can join. There is a limit on how many teams one streamer can create, but no limit on the number of teams one has joined.
