Throw more money at your favorite Twitch streams

Twitch isn’t going into tremendous detail at this stage, but it notes that streamers can provide special emotes to higher-tier subscribers. You could also see new “subscriber roles” at these levels. All of this is optional, though, so you won’t necessarily be pressured into paying more. Partners, meanwhile, can unlock emotes and hit milestones faster — a $10 subscription is treated like two subscribers, while $25 is worth six. – Jon Fingas, Engadget
