Emotes are an integral part of Twitch culture. And the artists who work hard to create amazing emotes don’t often get the recognition they deserve. However, Twitch’s new feature will make it easier to highlight and credit artists on the platform.
Creators can now attribute emotes to individual artists and grant them the new Artist Badge on their Twitch channels.
Twitch Emote Artist Badge
With how integral emotes are on Twitch, it’s surprising artists weren’t given proper recognition until now. However, from today creators will be able to make their artists stand out within the community.
And this can be done by creators in two ways. To make artists more distinguishable, creators can now assign them a special Artist Badge on their channels. Each creator can assign up to five Artist Badges using the Creator Dashboard.
Now, creators’ can give their artists a unique recognition in chat. And the community can easily recognize the talent behind their favorite emotes.
Artists’ who don’t wish to be identified publicly can hide the badge via their privacy settings.
Twitch Emote Attribution
The other way creators can make their artists stand out is via emote attribution. Since creators can have multiple artists, Twitch allows them to attribute every individual emotes on their channel to the artists who created them.
According to Twitch, “once an artist is assigned to an emote, their Twitch username is displayed, and the channel is linked in the emote details card that opens when a viewer clicks the emote in chat.”
The emote attribution credits the artist who created the emote whenever anyone clicks on an emote to view more information.
The Artist Badge and Emote Attribution feature allows creators to credit their artists properly and increases an artists’ exposure. It’s now easier than ever to find talented and creative artists for your channel!
