2 Easy Methods to Add Twitter Panel to Twitch

Twitch panels are an excellent way to promote your merchandise while streaming. Typically, these panels include links to your social media accounts, donation options, and merchandise. However, Twitch also supports extensions that allow you to bring your Twitter feed directly to the Twitch panel. Instead of just linking to your Twitter profile, you can display your latest tweets right on Twitch. In this article, we will show you two simple methods to add a Twitter panel to your Twitch channel.

Method 1: Creating a Twitch Panel Linking to Twitter

To create a Twitch panel that links to your Twitter profile, you can follow these steps:

  1. Use a third-party Twitch panel maker like NerdorDie to create the panel you want to link to Twitter.
  2. On the NerdorDie homepage, go to the Tools menu and select Twitch Panel Maker.
  3. Choose the Free Templates option to find a suitable panel design.
  4. Select a panel design from the list of templates provided.
  5. Click on Add to Cart and proceed to checkout.
  6. Provide the necessary details for the panel, but no payment information is required.
  7. Download the zip file and extract its contents.
  8. Go to Twitch > Profile Pic > Channel > About section and enable Edit panels.
  9. Click on the Plus (+) box below it and select Add a Text or Image Panel.
  10. Add the Twitter image from the extracted folder as an image for the panel.
  11. Paste your Twitter account link in the Image Links To section and submit.
  12. Now, everyone on your stream can access the Twitter panel you just added.

If you want to add other social media panels, make sure to maintain consistency with the template for an official look.

Method 2: Creating a Twitch Panel with the Twitter Feed

If you want to display your Twitter feed directly on the Twitch panel itself, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Twitch > Profile Pic > Channel > About section and enable Edit panel.
  2. Click on the Plus (+) box below it.
  3. Select the Extension panel option.
  4. On the created panel, click on the Extension Manager button.
  5. Search for the Twitter Feed + extension in the Discovery feed or use this link.
  6. Install the extension by clicking on the + Install button.
  7. In the pop-up, click on the Configure button.
  8. Enter your Twitter username and adjust the colors of the Twitch panel. Save the changes.
  9. The Twitter Feed + extension will be listed under My extensions. Activate it and set it as Panel 1 (or any other panel number if you already have additional extension panels).
  10. Now, your Twitch account will display the Twitter feed directly on the channel, with a scrollbar to view more tweets.

By subscribing to the Twitter Feed + Premium subscription, you can enjoy additional customization features like hover colors and custom headers.

Using either of these methods, you can effectively promote your Twitter handle while streaming on Twitch. One method provides a clean link for people to open your Twitter profile, while the other method displays your latest tweets directly on Twitch. Please note that these methods will only show tweets and retweets on your profile, not your replies. Apart from NerdorDie, you can explore other Twitch Panel Maker sites for more templates and options.
