Allow to mark followed streamers as favorite.
I have a large list of streamers that I am following.
Some of them stream irregularly/rarely.
Some of those are game devs which i am interested in watching.
But due to their low popularity they end up on the bottom of the list, and sometimes i miss the fact that they are online.
The suggestion is to allow to mark followed streamers as favorite, so they will always show up at the top of the list.
When you favorite a channel put it on top of the followed channels sidebar (with a lil heart next to it) so you dont have to click show more to find out if your favourite channel is live
A lot of times I like to go back and watch some VODs of streams that I missed but it can be a little annoying to have to search for them everytime I want to go over to their channel, it would be really nice if there was a way to either pin channels or games to either your front page or the sidebar.

So this is a bit illogical. If you watch a channel on a daily basis, all videos are marked as watched, then on the Followed Channels panel, these channels are last. that makes no sense.If I didn't watched a channel in a week or a few days, videos are just piling up and my favorite channel will never be the top channel.

I like following a lot of streamers, but having an option to favorite channels in a private list would be helpful for customizing a bookmark of these channels for quick access or zipping through popular streamers' top numbers and get to channels I follow with lower views.
Identical to this suggestion. Upvoting both because we need this feature! https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310210-discovery-browsing-and-searching/suggestions/18691522-favorite-streamers-option
Not everybody is checking the panels below, and especially not everybody watching your stream on PC. On mobile devices important for viewers, only the video and chat. So I think it is a good idea to have this extra options beside the follow icon.
I believe a feature to be able to favorite broadcasters and have them show up in their own section on the sidebar, below following, would be a great idea.
I know there are a lot of users out there that follow many broadcasters on Twitch, but simply just don't have the time to watch them all and maybe you just pop in every now and then. Or you have friends that rarely stream, but it's so far down the following list when you're looking for something to watch that you miss it (And you're not really a fan of notifications like myself so you don't find out until it's too late.)
Basically this feature would be a great convenience for anyone interested in keeping up with their favorite broadcasters on Twitch whether or not someone follows a lot of people, or only a small amount.
I have these in a panel below stream anyway, would make sense i guess :)
Many streamers have all kinds of places they are Twitter/Youtube/Facebook/this that and everything else.
It would be awesome if streamers had the option to add some of these options. (it can be listed under the follow button or next to it.) This would make it super simple for people to follow their favorite people on their favorite platforms!
My reasoning behind this is a large quantity of people use these for different aspects of their stream. Youtube for exporting highlights/past broadcasts. Twitter/Facebook for contact or for notifying people about delays, when they are streaming, or updates about what they do.
