Besides using this tool, some channels also have bots on the channel that will show you how long you have been following a channel for with certain commands.

For example, on my stream if a viewer types !followtime [USERNAME] in the chat, my Cloudbot will reply with how long that user has been following me for. If you have Cloudbot, this is a default command.

Many channels have this command, but they may have it named something different. On most channels, if you type !commands you will see a list of the channels commands.

If that command doesn’t work, just ask a mod if they have a follow command and they should be able to help. But now why would someone want to now how long a user has followed a channel for?

Frequently Asked Questions About Following On Twitch

What Are The Benefits Of Following A Twitch Streamer?

Following a Twitch streamer has many perks such as being more easily able to find the streamer in the future, earning more channel points on a stream when you follow the channel, and lastly it is the least you can do to support a streamer that you like.

Since following a channel is free there is really no reason not to follow a channel you like. And some streamers are more easily able to secure sponsors and brand deals with more followers on their channel.

Having a certain amount of followers is also a requirement to become a Twitch affiliate and so if you like a streamer who is aiming for that goal, it helps them reach their goal as well.

How Do You Check How Long You’ve Watched A Twitch Channel For?

Certain Twitch chatbots, such as Cloudbot, allow you to check how long you have watched a channel for by typing the command !watchtime in chat. All you have to do is type !watchtime in chat and the bot will respond with how long you have watched the channel for.

However, although !watchtime is the most common name for this command, some streamers may choose to change the name of this command to something they like more.

If you have tried using the !watchtime command on a channel and it doesn’t work, try asking a mod or the streamer what the proper command is to see your watch time on a stream.
