Using chat commands for your Twitch chat bot

Twitch bot commands are special chat commands which you, your mods, and your viewers can use in your Twitch chat.

Anyone with a Twitch account can use one of your chat commands by typing «!Command» in Twitch chat, with «Command» being the name of your command.

Example use of a !schedule chat command

Chat commands are there to help you minimize the effort you spend on repeating yourself, so you can focus on what's important: engaging with and entertaining your audience.

The bot commands do this by displaying repetitive information to your viewers, be it common questions your viewers ask, or just plugging your social media.

Chat commands can also increase viewer engagement. Moobot offers many features which increase engagement, and your viewers will interact with many of the features through the use of chat commands.

Chat commands are great at engagement because they are very common on Twitch, simple to use, and anyone with a Twitch account can interact with chat commands. This means higher engagement for you.
