How to ban someone on Twitch

There are a few different ways to do it.

Moderating your Twitch channels chat is a crucial element in making sure that your community maintains a certain standard. 

Some streamers prefer to let their chat get a little bit wild, while others like to run a tight ship, employing numerous moderators.

Perhaps the most powerful tool that any streamer or moderator has in policing their chat is the ability to ban a user from the chat. This is typically reserved for the highest offenses in a chat, including the use of vulgar or hateful language.

When moderating a chatroom, there are a couple of ways to quickly execute a ban on a user.

The first, and perhaps the easiest, way to ban someone is to type the command /ban in your channels chat followed by the username of the person youd like to ban.

Additionally, you can click on someones username in your chat. Clicking their name will show you how long theyve followed or subbed to you. It will also give you the option to ban a user.
