Recognize new Twitch subs and follows, encouraging others to do the same. This small recognition has been shown to be enough to boost further such engagements.
Moobot can automatically give recognition for several desirable engagements on Twitch:
- New Twitch subs
- New Twitch follows
- Cheered Bits in Twitch chat
- Gifted Twitch subs
- Mystery gifted Twitch subs
- Raids from other Twitch streamers
- Hosts from other Twitch streamers
Moobot will give recognition for these engagements in a public alert posted in Twitch chat.
The engagements can also be seen (by you) in your dashboard's notification log widget.
Setting up engagement alerts in Twitch chat
Just follow these steps to activate alerts in Twitch chat:
- Open up the
Featuresmenu from the main menu, then open the
Chat notificationsmenu from there.
- While in the
Chat notificationsmenu activate the toggle button on the right side of the engagement you want to activate alerts for.
- You're all set! You can now go ahead and adjust the settings to fit your needs.
Adjusting your Twitch chat alert for increased engagement
Engagement can be further increased by adjusting the different messages used for your alert.
By varying and customizing the messages with your own community in mind, the alert becomes more interesting and noticeable to your viewers.
Putting in a little bit of work to adjusting the messages is highly recommended to increase engagement.
Every message in the alert can be adjusted, and Moobot will rotate and shuffle the messages to reduce duplicates.
Rewarding special engagements
Some engagements are simply more special than others.
For certain engagement types, you can adjust the messages picked by the alert to be more exclusive than other messages.
For example, you can celebrate a 5 year re-sub, a Tier 3 sub, or give Twitch Prime instructions to other viewers whenever someone subs with Twitch Prime.
Simply click the
Add messages... button at the bottom of the settings menu, and set the exclusivity. E.g.
20 viewers etc., and Moobot will pick one of those messages for those engagements.
E.g. by adding messages for Twitch re-subs with
2 or more months,
12 or more months, and
13 or more months, Moobot will pick different messages depending on the months subscribed.
In this case, an exclusive celebratory one-year message can be made with the
12 or more months messages, and in the next month when the sub is for 13 months, Moobot will pick from the
13 or more months messages.
To add another message for 2 years, you'd simply add messages for
24 or more months and
25 or more months.
For special engagements like new Twitch subs, you can adjust the messages for all the types of subs:
Tier 1 sub,
Tier 2 sub,
Tier 3 sub and
Using your own Twitch sub emotes in your Twitch chat alerts
You can make your alerts more interesting and relevant to your community by using your own Twitch emotes in your chat alert messages.
For Moobot to use your emotes, you or your viewers can gift a sub to Moobot, or if you're a Twitch partner you can get a free (life time!) sub for your Twitch bot by following this Twitch help article.
Adding your Twitch sub count and score to your Twitch chat alerts
Having a public sub goal can greatly increase your sub engagement, whether it's to hit a milestone, to unlock more emote slots, or something else.
Your alert messages can display your up-to-date Twitch sub count and score, making it much easier for you and your community to see your goals, without you having to manually keep the current amounts up-to-date.
Simply follow these steps to add your Twitch sub count and/or score to your Twitch chat alerts:
- In the relevant settings menu (for editing the alert messages), select and focus a message input, which will display a drop-down of tags you can insert into the message.
- Select the
Insert Twitch total subscriber count, or/and
Insert Twitch total subscriber scoreoption.
- The tag should now be in your message, and when the alert is posted to Twitch chat, Moobot will display your up-to-date Twitch sub count/score in the tag's place.
- (Optional) You may add to or subtract from the sub-count or/and -score, in case the value given to Moobot by Twitch is inaccurate. Simply adjust the values in the adjustment inputs. (An inaccuracy may occur if you are given free subs to your channel.)
- Click the
Savebutton at the bottom of the menu. If required, follow the instructions to grant Moobot permission to your Twitch sub list.
Increasing the visibility of your Twitch chat alerts
By activating the
Color the notification messages checkbox when editing the settings of an alert, the alert messages will be colored differently in Twitch chat, increasing their visibility.
Reducing spam from alerts in Twitch chat
To reduce the perceived chat spam that may arise from alerts, follow these steps:
- Avoid the chat getting flooded with messages on bursts of engagements by adjusting the
Minimum delay between each sent messagevalue to group several alerts into a single message.
- Avoid repeating messages by adding variation to your messages.
- Avoid generic messages by adjusting the messages to fit your community instead.
Ignoring alerts from fake Twitch viewers
For some engagements, Moobot can be set to detect and ignore alerts from fake Twitch viewers.
These fake viewers can be users trying to maliciously spam your alerts, or bots that roam Twitch.
Simply activate the
Attempt to detect and ignore notifications from fake users checkbox in the relevant settings menu to activate this protection.
Someone followed, but an alert was never made in Twitch chat
The user was likely treated as a fake Twitch viewer. You can disable this option if you do not wish to skip such alerts.
