Why Can’t I see certain emotes on Twitch? Why do they show up as text?

If certain emotes such as Pepega, OMEGALUL and MonkaS show up as text for you, that’s because you do not have the BetterTTV or FrankerFaceZ browser extensions installed.

By installing such a browser extension, typing a word such as ‘MonkaS’ in Twitch chat will turn the word into the appropriate emote.

Keep in mind, the streamer needs to have the emote enabled for this to work.

The best way to ensure you see all Twitch emotes is to install both FrankerFaceZ and BetterTTV.
