Following the pandemic, content streaming platforms have seen a rise in revenue worldwide. It was quite predictable, really. Before the pandemic, most people worked to the bone in corporate sector jobs. Lockdown provided them with a much-needed break, one with an undetermined end date. So, naturally, people turned to the one thing they like more than money: entertainment.
Although OTT platforms and music was getting all the attention for the first five to six months, people inevitably got bored soon. Then, they turned to niched entertainment like YouTube, Television, LinkedIn, and Twitter. All these platforms saw a considerable rise in users and revenue during the pandemic.
However, as the pandemic stretched, people who could afford it started experimenting with new and fun ways to keep themselves entertained. Streaming platforms like OnlyFans and Twitch peaked in this phase and haven’t come down yet.
If you’ve heard about OnlyFans or used the platform, you must know that it doesn’t have a mobile or a web app yet, and it doesn’t seem to be in the plans anytime soon. Do you know why that is?
It’s because the app hides the content of its creators behind a paywall, meaning that only the followers of that content creator are allowed to see the content. That, paired with OnlyFans’ casual approach towards NSFW and pornographic content, doesn’t give a good message.
This is why no app service will ever host any OnlyFans app unless the platform puts a strict, no-sexual content policy for its creators.
However, as Twitch isn’t caught up in a similar or any other dilemma, it rose as one of the most interactive and entertaining platforms for gamers and content creators from all fields and ages. Another reason why Twitch is so famous is that there’s just so much scope for creativity on the platform.
In today’s blog, we’ll talk about how you can see a list of the people you’re following on Twitch. To learn all about it, stick with us until the end!
Is it Possible to See Who I Am Following on Twitch?
Before we answer how you can see who you’re following on Twitch, let us first tell you why you should want to know who you’re following on Twitch.
On any platform, people follow, connect, or subscribe to other users or creators worldwide: this is essentially the base concept of social media platforms.
We either know these users or creators personally or like what they do. Either way, after every few days, we connect with new people and grow further apart from others, right?
If you’re reading this blog, there’s a pretty good chance you’re an Instagram user. Can you remember the last time you looked at your following list on the platform? We’re betting it has just been a while.
Internet users have grown more and more particular as they’re getting accustomed to AI anticipating anything and everything they could possibly want without saying anything.
So, even if we see one thing on our feed that isn’t relevant to our interests, we immediately think about removing it from there. We evolve, and so do our interests; there’s nothing wrong with that.
Don’t you think it would be so convenient if you could just check which people you were following, all in one place? You know, instead of having to remember everyone or searching for them in your feed?
A similar thought must’ve struck someone on Twitch, as the platform does have an option to do so. Although it isn’t possible to see a list of the people you’re following on Twitch on the smartphone app, you can do so on any browser. Read on to learn all about it!
Here’s How to See Who You’re Following on Twitch on Google Chrome
Step 1: Go to Chrome on your laptop, computer, or smartphone.
Step 2: The first screen is your home screen, where you can see recommended lives and categories.
At the top-left corner, you’ll see two options: FOLLOWING and BROWSE. Tap on the former option.
Step 3: In the middle of the screen, under the Following banner, you’ll see several tab options called Overviews, Lives, Videos, Hosts, Categories, and Channels. Tap on the last one.
You’ll be able to see all the channels you follow in this tab.
However, what do you do when you want to remove someone from your following?
