Twitch Achievements!

Hey there! I wanted to share a really great idea that I came up with and did not see on the uservoice section of Twitch:

In addition to the achievements listed above, there is limitless opportunities for new achievements to become available with constant new additions to Twitch! The sky is the limit! Also, it could be possible to create some kind of rewards system for achievements that are earned and could contain some form of value. With this achievement system in place, both streamers and viewers will benefit and ultimately increase network traffic, broadcast time, viewership, and in the end drive revenue for Twitch.tv!
