Being able to credit the artists who create the emotes your viewers use is a great step forward for Twitch.
Chances are, when you think of Twitch, you think of Twitch chat and all the emotes that all your favourite streamers have.
Until now, there’s never been a way to credit the artists behind the emotes, those unsung creatives that have created those little icons that have almost become their own language on the platform. And, it’s little wonder, really. Emotes allow for interactivity within a specific community, and for in-jokes to be shared amongst people in the know. “Can we get some pogchamps in chat?”
This is due to change, however. Twitch announced on Tuesday that they’re adding ways to credit the artists behind emotes. Artists will get their own badge to use in chat, and streamers can attribute specific emotes to specific artists. Take a look below.
As you can see, specific emotes will now be easily attributed to specific artists.
This is an excellent step towards artists getting the recognition they deserve when it comes to Twitch, and rightfully so. They definitely deserve to be recognised for the work they do.
