Twitch is the world's leading live-streaming platform for gamers with millions of active users. And in recent times, it has started to become more like a social media platform. This is the reason Twitch now has a social feed named Pulse aimed at helping creators engage with their subscribers and keep them updated about all the happenings.
In simple words, Pulse is just like News Feed on Facebook which allows you to stay updated with what your favorite Twitch creators are up to. It will be replacing the Twitch's home page for logged-in users even if there is a live streaming going on. As for streamers, they will be able to share updates in the form of text-based posts, images, videos, links, and GIFs along with various other cool forms like contests, polls, questions, and memes.
Once a post has been shared, it will be visible to all friends and followers of a particular Twitch creator. All the Channel editors and moderators will be able to edit and delete any post/comment for the channel they are linked with. On the other hand, viewers will be seeing all posts in chronological order and will be able to post comments on them.
Twitch has started to roll out Pulse to everyone and it should become available to all users by mid-March. Other than the web version, Pulse will also be made available via Twitch mobile app.
