Cheering with Bits is a fun way to support me and celebrate awesome things I do or just because! A Cheer is a chat message that uses Bits that you purchase with real money. Bits can be used one by one, bulk amounts, or all in.
To Cheer, type “cheer” in chat followed by the number of Bits you want to use. The higher amount of Bits you use activates cooler animated emotes. You earn Bit badges the more you Cheer, and also Top Cheerers badges!
When you Cheer, you choose whether your message will include the animated Bit gem emotes, or Cheermotes, which are animated versions of popular global emotes. I personally use the Zombie one!
In addition, Twitch provides participating streamers a share of the revenue Twitch receives from Bits used to Cheer for them. The standard share for Partners and Affiliates is 1 cent per Bit used to Cheer for them. In some special cases, like esports tournaments or charity events, there may be different revenue sharing arrangements.
When you use Bits, you’ll also earn a shoutout on stream in appreciation for your Cheer, and you may also end up on my leaderboard, which resets weekly!
