Sometimes, when someone is annoying you, the best thing to do is simply block them. In this article, we’re going to describe exactly how to do that on Twitch.

Twitch is a video and gaming streaming platform that is available to anybody over the age of 13 years old. This means that there’s a good chance you’ll encounter chatters that are either much older than you or much younger than you.

It’s nothing new for different generations to disagree on particular things, so when three or four different generations are coming together in what can be quite a competitive environment, there’s bound to be a clash of opinions.

Blocking a user achieves a number of things which can help keep your Twitch experience peaceful. By blocking somebody, you filter their messages out of any chat, prevent them from messaging you directly, stop them from following you, stop them from subscribing to you and prevent them from gifting subscriptions in your Twitch channel.

If you only want to ignore somebody in chat but still don’t mind them remaining as a follower, subscribe and don’t mind them gifting subs in your channel, you can just type /ignore [username] in the chat.
