"favorite" channels pinned to the top on following page
I think it would be awesome if we could have "favorite" streamers / channels of all our followed channels that get pinned to the top. This way we can have all our most watched followed channels at the top for easier browsing. Some of us follow many channels and we don't want to unfollow them, but we want the channels we watch most to be at the top.

Great suggestion! Having a "favorite" or "pinned" section for frequently watched channels at the top of the Following page would indeed enhance user experience. It's a user-centric idea that could make browsing more efficient.
It's been 8 years. I don't think this will ever happen.
This NEEDS to be a thing. When you follow 100+ we need to be able to sort it with our favs that we don't want to miss. 99% of the time the notifications don't work to let me know when my fav streamers are on.
We need this so much. I follow streamers I like, and might want to find again. But there are a few that I want to watch every time they are on and it would be so nice if they were at the top of my list.
The issue is i have a small streamer who i never see when he comes online, because the list is too long
If you think this idea is useful for you please upvote it or relay to someone in support.
Manage your favorite channels..
Like in any cheap web browser we should be able to order/ class our favorite twitch channels..classify them.. because when u get over 20 favorite channels it becomes so messy ..
I have an idea let's add a favorite button on channels. And on the followed channels add a filter to have our favorite streamers listed on top. I believe this will also solve any problems with those who have reach the cap of 2,000 followed channels. If you have to unfollow channels at least you won't unfollow your favorites. And you'll never miss another favorite live stream again.
I discovered a chrome plugin that can do that... idk if its allowed to post it here.
Add a way to favorite channels you follow, so when you go to your follow list, those channels would be at the top of the list when they are live.
for an easier time seeing if multiple people you frequently watch are currently streaming.
i heard that some users had this function in beta like 2/3 months ago. apparently they could pin 3 of their followed channels.
i never saw how it looked tho, i only saw ppl talking about it in a chat
edit 09/13/2022 : so they finally added to the website the choice between sorting streaming channels according to the recommendations algorithm, or by number of viewers decreasing. i'm personnally happy with that, since my favourite channels are now appearing on top
This idea is nearly 2 years old. I still want this soo **** much.
I think I now follow almost over 300 channels and you really no longer have an overview. It would be so great if you could favorite channels so you don't miss when they go online.
Please Twitch implement this!
The new functionality sadly doesn’t work. I can only pick 3 channels which is not even close to enough for me and once they go offline they disappear so they don’t ever stay pinned. Unfortunately it’s unusable in current format :(
I wish channels I modded for would automatically go to the top at the very least or I could sort. The ones with the most viewers are rarely the ones I want to go to by default.
That would be the best! 🥰
Pin my favorite streamers to the top of the list, then sort the rest by viewcount (like how it is now), in the following list. This should be in the browser and the apps.
I currently do not see a lot of smaller streamers I follow when they are online because the follower section prioritizes by current viewer count alone.
Having an option to favorite streamers so they appear at the top of my list when they are live would allow me to remain followed to large streams while letting me prioritize streamers I want to assist in channel growth.
Alternatively, prioritize the following list based on who I am actively subscribed to before follower count. This way I have a higher chance of knowing when the streamers I actively support are live.
Twitch should add a "favorite" button that would allow the main watched channel of each user to appear above the "followed channel"
For those who have larger follow lists and struggle to pick out streamers or manage notifications (e.g neurodivergent, ADHD, dyslexia, autism, blindness, etc...) it would be helpful to be able to pin or mark streams that they would prefer to watch frequently.
This would allow one to see at a glance if streams they want to prioritize are live. There is not enough separation between online and offline channels either.
For myself as an example; I follow channels to offer support but don't always want to watch them. I have a set of channels I ALWAYS go to but I struggle to keep track of time and schedules (notifications don't work). I check who is live when I open twitch, but scrolling through the channel list I often miss seeing them.
Being able to separate or categorize follow list would be a huge help in chunking out information for visual or processing difficulties.
not sure if this is the right category. im just thinking it would be nice to have a way to favorite specific channels that i follow so that they are at the top of my "LIVE NOW" list. I follow a ton of people for support and sometimes, am able to catch their streams every once in a while, but because i follow so many, when i get on to see who is on, i have to scroll through my list...which, okay...for me in particular, its not AS long as those who have been on twitch from the very beginning. i just...i know certain other programs that have a favorites option that pushes their favorites to the top of whoever, friend's, followers, what have list. idk. its just a suggestion. that i feel would be a good one. because i dont want to unfollow people just because my list is so much to have to scroll through to find one of my friends. i want to support everyone. idk. thanks for reading, i guess.
