If you want to get more people to your other social channels from Twitch, then adding a social command is an easy way for your users to find the links. The easier it is for them to find the links the more followers you will gain across your social channels.

Let’s jump in and get started.

How To Set Up !Social Command On Twitch

To set up the Social 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 (Social)

In Night bot navigate to Commands –> Custom –> Add Command.

We now have to create our command. There is a few different options we need to fill in.

Command – This is what users will type into chat to return all of your social media links.

Message – The message is what gets returned to the user when they enter the command in your Twitch chat. Here you can include the social platform and your link. E.G. Youtube: https://youtube.com/yourchannel

Userlevel – For this command you can set userlevel to everyone.

Cooldown – You don’t want people to repeatedly spam the Social command in chat so I would recommend setting cool down to a minimum of 60 seconds.

Alias – You can leave this blank

Below you can see how the command should look before clicking submit to save the command.

We can now test this command on our stream.

Step 3 – Test The !Social Command

To test if the Social command is working, head over to your Twitch chat and type in the !social command.

All you have to do to trigger the command is type !social in chat. As you can see below nightbot returns the most recent follower on your channel.

Wrapping Up

That’s all there is to it. Now your viewers can easily check out your social media channels by using the social command in chat.
