With the enormous popularity of this streaming platform, the streamers and their audience began wishing for a way to track the number of followers and subscriptions the most popular content creators have.
The result of this need is a Twitch sub leaderboard, a place where you can see the top Twitch streamers, both currently and all-time ones, all in one place.

What Is a Sub Leaderboard?
A sub leaderboard is a place on your channel page where you can recognize your most dedicated Twitch followers and active subscribers by making their devotion to your channel visible to anyone who visits it.
Much like the top donator count, the leaderboard will show a number of your top gifters and cheerers, usually 3 of them. The viewers can then expand the board by clicking on it to show up to a total of 10 spots.
Furthermore, it is possible to set up more than one leaderboard, with each of them tracking a different parameter, so your viewers are recognized no matter in which way they contribute to the channel.
Setting Up Twitch Sub Leaderboard
Depending on whether you are a Twitch affiliate or a partner, the menu leading to the Twitch leaderboard changes a little.
Either way, you will need to click on the hamburger menu in the top left corner of your Twitch stream, then go to preferences.
There, you will have a Partner or an Affiliate button depending on your status on the platform.
Choose it, then look for the Community&Recognition option. Under that, you will find a menu called Leaderboards.
How to set up the leaderboard to all-time?
When setting up your leaderboard, you will be greeted with four possible options to choose from, concerning the period the leaderboard will take into account when choosing the Twitch subscribers to feature.
You will see a short description of each option, explaining how it works. Simply tick the time option and save your choice. The leaderboard will immediately reflect your choice, showing people’s ranks and Twitch sub badges here.
Adding a Leaderboard to the About Me Section
The easiest way to add a leaderboard to the About me section is through the extensions menu of your Twitch account.
There are a lot of different leaderboard extensions compatible with Twitch, so all you will need to do is go to the extensions menu, found on your creator dashboard, and select the one you like.
Activate it, and go back to the about me page of your channel. You will now see your top cheerers, gifted subs, or whatever you set here.
