Emotes are one of Twitch’s most popular features. They can bring your community together with inside jokes and help spread your stream when your custom emotes are used in other chats.
So, how do you get access to more emotes on Twitch? Let’s take a look!
How Do I Get More Emotes On Twitch?
To get emotes on Twitch you will need to achieve affiliate status at a minimum with partners getting extra emote slots. Below we have put together a table outlining how many emote slots you get for a certain amount of subscriber points.
What Are Subscriber Points On Twitch?
Subscriber points on twitch are the currency used to redeem emote slots. A different number of points are earned depending on the tier of subscriber. Streamers will get one subscriber point for a Tier 1 sub, 2 Subscriber points for a Tier 2 Sub and lastly 6 subscriber points from a Tier 3 Sub.

This is not a fully complete chart for partners. Partners will continue to earn emote slots right up until 10,000 Subscription points where they will unlock 60 emote slots.
You can check out the full chart from Twitch here with a full range of Partner Subscription tiers.
Partners will also get 5 additional emote slots on their Tier 2 & Tier 3 Subscriptions.
Do Re-Subs On Twitch Count Towards Subscriber Points?
Re-subs will continue to count towards the total subscriber points a channel has however it will not increase the number of subscriber points. After the initial sub the streamer will receive the subscriber points and will keep them until that subscription is cancelled.
When a subscription is cancelled you will lose the subscription points.
If I Lose Subscriber Points On Twitch Will I Lose Emote Slots?
No, once you have unlocked emote slots they will stay unlocked for good. However if you want to reach the next tier you will have to get up to the next emote slot level once again.
Do Lifetime Subscribers Give Sub Points On Twitch?
What Are Lifetime Subscribers?
Lifetime subscribers on Twitch are only available for channels that have been partnered. When a channel gets partnered they get access to 3 Lifetime subscriptions that they can donate to specific viewers. Streamers only ever get access to 3 lifetime subscriptions so you will have to use them wisely when you reach partner.
The streamer has the choice of which tier of sub they want to donate as a lifetime subscription.
Lifetime subscriptions do not give the Twitch streamer any revenue.
Do Lifetime Subscriptions Give Sub Points?
Yes, lifetime subscriptions give you sub points depending on the level of subscription that the streamer donates. Obviously it makes sense for the streamer and viewer to gift a Tier 3 sub so that the streamer gets the sub points and the viewer gets all the Tier 3 benefits.
