How to Link Your Twitch Account to Discord

Linking your Twitch account to your Discord account has a lot of benefits for both streamers and viewers.

Steamers are able to create special subscriber roles in their Discord servers and allow viewers with linked Twitch accounts to use their custom Twitch emotes in Discord. Subscribers can also be labeled with special colors, and other cool things.

Viewers are able to see a list of who they’re subscribed to and the sub-enabled Discord servers they’re a part of. They’re also be able to display their Twitch account on their user profile in Discord. Here’s how to link your Twitch and Discord Accounts.
