If you’re streaming on Twitch and starting to get some viewers, you probably quickly felt the need to start using bots. Whether it’s to avoid spam in the chat, send special alerts when someone follows the channel or is subscribed, schedule or repeat a message in the chat… In short, there are multiple bots that can meet these needs. And here is a small guide that will allow you to discover some of them, including the most famous at the moment.
Best Twitch Bots
You don’t want to read, you prefer a summary? Here are the Twitch bots we’re going to present:
Twitch bot 1 : Nightbot
By far the most popular bot on Twitch and YouTube, Nightbot has the advantage of being easy to use, integrate and handle on every Twitch stream.
One of its best features is the spam filter. Whether it’s inappropriate URLs, insults, or any other spam that doesn’t belong in the live stream, Nightbot allows eliminating a good part of these messages in order to make the live chat more pleasant (for the viewers as well as for the streamer for sure).
Nightbot allows you to send regular messages automatically. For example, to indicate news, to share your social networks or during a sponsored/affiliated action, to share a video game. In fact, it can be used in many ways, and it’s very useful to be able to focus on the Twitch live!
It is also possible to exempt moderators for example, from any spam filter. But this one allows doing much more like:
- Offer a gift to a viewer.
- Allow viewers to vote and choose for the song to put on the stream.
- Access to chat logs to better understand the reasons for a ban, deletion of a message, etc.
Twitch bot 2 : Moobot

It is possible to customize it as desired, to avoid spam, and focus on the animation of the stream and sharing.
