You have probably seen it on other Twitch channels, where their viewers can type in a command and it will return how long they have been following the streamer for. This is an interesting stat for both the user, as well as the streamer so they can see who their OG fans really are.
In this tutorial, we are going to break down how you can set up the FollowAge command on your Twitch stream using Nightbot.
Let’s jump in.
How To Set Up !FollowAge Command On Twitch
To set up the FollowAge command on your Twitch channel you will need to use a third party bot. In this tutorial, we will be showing you how to set up the command with Nightbot. If you haven’t already created a nightbot account head over to Nightbot and create one.
Step 1 – Mod Nightbot
To ensure that night bot works on our channel we will have to first mod Night bot in our chat. This allows it to pull necessary information from your channel and return it in chat.
To mod night bot head over to Twitch and open you Twitch channel. To do this navigate to your Profile Picture –> Creator Dashboard –> Chat Box.
In the chat box type /mod nightbot
This will mod the Night bot chat bot in your chat allowing you to use commands in your stream.
Step 2 – Add A Custom Command In Nightbot (FollowAge)
In Night bot navigate to Commands –> Custom –> Add Command.
We now have to create our command. There are a few different options we need to fill in.
Command – This is what users will type into chat to return how long they have been following the stream for. For FollowAge add !FollowAge
Message – The message is what gets returned to the user when they enter the command in your Twitch chat. I have added the code below so you can just copy and paste it into nightbot.
Userlevel – For this command, you can set userlevel to everyone
Cooldown – You don’t want people to repeatedly spam this in chat so I would recommend setting cool down to a minimum of 60 seconds.
Alias – You can leave this blank
We can now test this command on our stream.
Step 3 – Test The !FollowAge Command
To test if the shoutout command is working, head over to your Twitch chat and type in the !FollowAge command.
All you have to do to trigger the command is type !followage in chat. As you can see nightbot will return a message. Obviously, you cannot follow yourself on Twitch so mine says I am not following. This will return the follow age if the person triggering the command is a follower.
What Does The FollowAge Command Do?
The followage command allows viewers to see how long they have been following the streamer by using the command in their chat.
That’s all there is to it. You should now have your follow age command set up and can enjoy watching your followers find out how long they have been following you for. It’s a great way to find out who the real OGs are.
