Twitch has introduced new emotes as a part of one year anniversary of the Affiliate program.
Twitch introduced its Affiliate program about a year ago. It gave the streamers a way to earn money through their streams after they met certain conditions to become an Affiliate and thus, putting them on the path to become a Twitch Partner. Under the program, Twitch Affiliates can earn through Bits, subscriptions, or by game or item sales. April 24th marks the anniversary of the Affiliate program, and Twitch celebrated it with a spotlight of some of the best Affiliate moments.
