What's the Best Way of Sharing a Twitch Link?

Twitch offers multiple different ways of sharing streaming links, and each offers pros and cons. Here's a quick rundown of what's best for each scenario.

There's no way of directly embedding a video to any social media accounts so however you share the link, other users will need to go to the Twitch website to view. 

  • Twitter sharing. Twitter has a very active gaming community, and if you're keen to develop a reputation across social media as an avid streamer, this is a great first port of call for doing so. It's a fun place to share links with friends too.
  • Facebook sharing. It's likely your Facebook profile is more private than other forms of social media, but that means you can share Twitch streams with closer friends and family. 
  • VK sharing. VK is a Russian social media and social networking service, so it's not massively well known worldwide. However, it has at least 600 million accounts, so it's still a good outlet for gaining more followers.
  • Reddit sharing. Reddit has a particularly expansive gaming community. Whether you're sharing to r/gaming or a Reddit devoted to the particular game you're playing, it can be a reliable source of followers or simply a way to share something cool you've seen.
  • Copy URL sharing. Ultimately, you have the most control over how you share a stream via simply copying the URL. If you want to privately message someone the stream or send it via iMessage or SMS, this is the best route.
