All Twitch streamers love getting raided on streams by someone else in the community. You can appreciate this raid by learning how to play a random clip from Streamer when raided.
This gives you an amazing feeling that someone thought about you out of those tons of people that are currently alive by thinking that your stream was worthy to send to that community.
We thank these people by giving them a shout-out in the chat and sometimes we even have some more special effects like for instance my raid polaroid.
Usually when someone raids you always introduce yourself and the way that you play your games to the people that come in.
However, there are also people that have already been watching you on your stream that are being introduced to a new person that is coming in into a new community as well.
We usually don’t really get to know anything about them and this effect is perfect to introduce the person that is coming in with the raid to your own community what better way to do that than by showing off their own stream?

In the first step, you need to connect your twitch account to Twitch Guru and configure it. Then further you need to add a source to OBS.

Now you are all set and the next time whenever your stream gets raided by someone, simply type the shoutout command !SO (streamer username).
So let’s say if you get raided by FaZe Swagg then type !SO Swagg and hit the enter key.
Can I Stop Streaming after Raiding?
Yes, you need to stop streaming after raiding as your stream won’t end. Many people are still in the myth that the stream will automatically end after raiding.
You will have to end the stream by yourself or the stream will continue.
However, many streamers including me have requested that there should be a feature where the stream should get ended automatically after raiding.
