One of the most hotly requested features has made it’s way to Twitch: username changes. Starting today, everyone on Twitch will be able to change your username once every 60 days. To do this, go to your Settings and it’s on the first page.
Quick Facts About Username Changes on Twitch
- Twitch Partner revenue will not be impacted
- Your username will be held for a minimum of six months after which it may return to the pool of available usernames
- Partners: Your old username will not be made available again to anyone else (expect in special circumstances)
