If you have recently blocked any user due to annoying chat or spamming or probably if you got banned from any streamer then you must be eager that how to know if someone blocked you on Twitch.
Twitch has its own rules to protect and care about the streamers as well as their viewers.
In this article, I will cover everything like how do you know if you are blocked on Twitch and what happens if you are blocked.
Can you ban someone from watching your twitch?
Yes, a streamer or their mod can ban any of their viewers, and similarly, Twitch can also ban any streamer who breaks Twitch T&C.
Even a big streamer Dr. Disrespect was banned from twitch in 2019 for streaming in the public bathrooms as this was against twitch’s streaming agreement.
And so like Twitch, you can also ban your viewers on twitch for breaking your rules like annoying chat irritating you other viewers as well. Similarly, you can also report a streamer to twitch who is not following the rules like using viewbot or being abusive.
How to know if someone blocked you on Twitch Stream Chat?
Now if as a viewer you are not able to chat or whisper on any specific streamer channel, then probably you are banned.
Mostly the mod will warn you with the reasons and will ask you to not do such things or else you can get banned.
If you still continue even after warning you may get banned and so when you try to chat you may even get messages like
- You are currently banned from this channel twitch
- You are unable to follow this user twitch
What happens if you are blocked on Twitch?
You will get a box with a message that you have been banned and so you won’t be able to
- Chat or whisper
- You may not view other users chatting
- Cannot host or request a friendship
- Purchase gift subs
However, you will get an option to Request Unban and there you can apply to get unbanned.
Can I create Clips of a Twitch streamer who banned me?
Unfortunately no, once you have been banned by any twitch streamer or mod you won’t be able to create their clips.
So I can say you can only watch their streams but cannot engage with any activities like chat, whisper, and clips.
If you have requested for urban and after reviewing if they unban you then only you can use these features.
How to Request Unban in Twitch Chat
Probably you know now how to know if someone blocked you on Twitch and once you have clarified that you have been banned on any streamer chat.
If you think it’s been done by mistake or you feel guilty for what you did on the chat you can request for unban. Follow the steps to request unban on twitch.
- In the chat section only you will see a button in a blue color that says Request Unban.
- Click on it and you will see a box popping up which will show you the reason for getting banned on twitch chat with other information to fill.
- In “Enter a reason to get unban” type the legit reasons and be careful you get only 1 chance to request for unban. You must reply according to the reason above for getting banned.
- Once done click on Submit and you will get a message that your message will be reviewed.
So after submitting it’s up to the moderator and the streamer who soon review it and what they decide.
You can check after few hours or maybe by the next day.
