Friend people on twitch! (idea)


i have an nice idea to make twitch a real community for streamer and viewer :smiley:
why not make a friend option on twitch?

pls let me hear what u guys are thinking of the idea,

greet paragram

Why not make this?

My guess is that a user can already follow channels, which is basically just a one way friend relationship. If two people follow each other they have essentially befriended one another.

Unless there is some added functionality with a friend option, I do not see the benefit.

Twitch has already been down this route on Justin.TV years ago. There used to be a friends system, where if you followed someone and they followed you, you were considered “friends.” Eventually the friends system was completely removed as it didn’t make sense for the type of website it was becoming (and has now become).

This is not the proper place to submit feedback for the website (or Twitch in general). It is solely for the API. Please submit feedback to
