Twitch introduces Pulse - a social twist for game streamers

March 7, 2017

Twitch is a huge platform with over 150 million users (as of 2015), but users don’t have many ways to interact with their followers and other users. There is Twitch Chat, but this tool is for more personal interaction, as opposed to covering social networking needs. This is why Twitch is introducing Pulse.

Introducing Pulse. A place where streamers can post and engage with all of their followers and the greater Twitch community right from the Twitch front page.

In a nutshell, Pulse is much like Facebook’s Timeline, but with streamers in mind. It makes it simple to share clips, highlights, schedules, images and more. In addition, any post that goes on a streamer’s channel feed will also appear on Pulse, keeping a tighter interaction between all users, followers and friends.

The rollout begins today on both mobile and desktop versions, so you should be able to start networking soon.

How many of you were looking for something like this on Twitch? The new feature does seem like a very helpful tool that will keep Twitch users more engaged and spending more time using the service. It will also help bridge the distance between streamers and followers, making for better personal connections between users. Will you be using it?
