What Are Twitch Bits?

Cheering with Bits is another way to show your support for streamers and they let you celebrate certain moments with the community of viewers. A cheer is just a chat message that uses Bits, which can be used one at a time, all at once, or somewhere in-between.


When you decide to support a partner or affiliate, Bits work similarly to subs, so as you cheer in a certain channel, you will earn chat badges. A chat badge will last forever once you have it but will only appear in the channel you were cheering.
