Twitch Streamers Community

If you are looking for a community of Twitch streamers to hang out with then come and join the FollowTrain.tv Twitch streamers community. We currently use Discord to host our chat room plus free voice comms and every one is welcome to join.

What is Discord?

Discord is essentially a communication platform designed specifically for gamers. It’s like a modern day IRC client with a TeamSpeak server bundled with it! It’s awesome and it’s free!

“It’s time to ditch Skype and TeamSpeak. Discord is here. All-in-one voice and text chat for gamers that’s free, secure, and works on both your desktop and phone. Stop paying for TeamSpeak servers and hassling with Skype. Simplify your life. You’ll never go back.”

Discord IOS and Androids Apps

You can even join us using the mobile app and chat when you are not streaming or when your on the move, pop in and say “hi”, keep up to date with the latest Twitch trends and gain knowledge from other experienced streamers and Twitch partners.

How to join us on Discord

First thing you will need to do is create your free account then you can download the Discord desktop client and then you simply choose which device you use either Discord for IOS or Discord for Android.

Twitch Streamers Community on Discord

My plans for the FollowTrainTV Twitch Streamers Community Discord!

I really hope this group can grow and grow and that all streamers can learn and share new ideas in a friendly and open place. Streaming can be difficult and lonely at first, talking to yourself for hours on end with no response. Why not join us and get some support from our community of Twitch streamers!

The Final Word!

I tend to leave a final word summary at the end of every blog post I write. All I can say now is come and join us on Discord, don’t be shy everybody is welcome!
