Best Subreddits For Twitch Streamers

1. R/Twitch

Of course, Twitch has their own subreddit which is probably one of the best places on the web to learn from other streamers.

This huge subreddit has over 1 million members and is active 24/7. Here you’ll find guides, advice, success stories, technical support, and much more.

This is a great place to ask questions and network your way to the top of Twitch.

R/Twitch

  • 1m+ members
  • Super Active 24/7

2. R/SmallStreamers

While r/Twitch is more for Twitch chat, advice, guides and stuff in general, r/smallstreamers is completely focussed on the smaller Twitch streamers out there and helping them in their journey to success.

This is a great place to find other small streamers to play and collaborate with and you can promote your stream on this subreddit!

  • 18,000+ members
  • Stream promotion allowed

3. R/StreamWatchParty

If you’re looking for an ultra small Twitch community on Reddit, StreamWatchParty is the place to be. With nearly 2000 members they are still very small but that also means your post won’t get burried right away.

The Do’s and Don’ts For Twitch Communities

DO

  • Read the rules before joining a community
  • Actively engage with others and their posts (people will love you)
  • Collaborate with other streamers (this is one of the best ways to grow on Twitch as a small streamer!)

DON’T

  • Don’t spam your Twitch link everywhere. Nobody likes a spammer and you definitely don’t want to be known as that kind of individual, it will only stunt your growth.
  • Don’t DM others without permission.
  • Dont be judgemental, racist, sexist, the obvious.

What happened to Twitch Communities?

Twitch Communities was a built-in section on Twitch. Twitch removed in September of 2018 and replaced with tags.

Twitch believed the community section wasn’t helpful anymore as their userbase quickly grew in numbers. According to them, the community section had become confusing and their analytics showed that communities weren’t driving users to view streams.

Now it’s your turn

Hopefully you can find a Twitch Community that feels good for you among this list! I recommend you check out the discord groups, they always seem to be the closest communities and best places to network in general.

Also the TSAN is my favorite Twitch Community and definitely worth checking out if you’re looking for an active community! They have both a Facebook and Discord group.
