In the last year or so, I've done very casual variety streams; some involving coding projects, other times drawing some artwork, and most of the time, playing fighting games. It's not until the last couple of months where I looked at my Twitch stats that I've noticed I wasn't too far off with getting on the path to Twitch Affiliate. To become an affiliate, you need at least 50 followers and over the last 30 days have have at least 500 total minutes broadcast, 7 unique broadcast days, and an average of 3 or more concurrent viewers.
Just this past month, I realized I had checked all the boxes except for getting 50 followers (I was at 39). After reaching out on social media and a few wonderful humans helping me spread the word (you know who you are!), I hit 50 followers and became an affiliate! This means I can now accept bits (Twitch currency) and attain monthly subscribers, and put it back into the channel to make more creative content. I'm very grateful for this new community I plan to build up - one that revolves around fun but also helping one another in various ways – either through tech, art, or just having fun playing video games.
You can find me at twitch.tv/binarydigit! Thank you all SO MUCH! ⭐️
