How to Follow and Unfollow Someone on Twitch

When do you unfollow someone?

Well, I would probably unfollow someone if he or she is inactive or I don’t have time to watch their content. Other than that, there are many reasons for which people might follow and unfollow someone on Twitch. Earlier, we discussed how to unblock and block someone on twitch. Now, we will drill down further on how to follow and unfollow someone on twitch.

Here are some of the common reasons for which people unfollow streamers on Twitch:

  1. If the schedule of streamer or the viewer changes and they cannot catch up with the content.
  2. The content produced by the streamer is boring and does not resonate with the users anymore.
  3. Controversial comments made by streamer or viewers that you do not want to acknowledge.
  4. Follow for a follow situation.
  5. Growth of streamer may lower direct conversation with the viewers and thus can be a reason for unfollowing.
