Optimizing Viewer Retention
Suggestions for stream duration to maximize viewer retention when a trend of good viewership happens! For streamers who want to reach greater heights, they want the best possible advice as to how they can get out of a rut such as low viewership averages.
The analytics on Twitch should be a bit more transparent, since on the mobile application you can see total views, however, it's a bit trickier on the desktop application. I feel there should be some tweaking in order to provide clarity on just how many view, in total, the streamer is gaining/losing, or anything other that could significantly affect the streamer's livelihood. This would be quite beneficial for the community as a whole, in my opinion.

tips to boost your viewer average
I'm sure everyone can agree that Average Viewers is a pretty good way to determine how popular someone's Twitch channel is, but what it doesn't tell you is whether their Average Viewers comes from a lot of people watching for a small amount of time (low stickiness), or if it comes from a few viewers staying for a larger proportion of the stream.
Why is this important?
Well I think it would be a useful metric to have to help someone decide what they need to do to grow their channel.
If your viewer stickiness is low and people don't stay around for long, then that's a sign that your content is not entertaining enough.
If you have high viewer stickiness and the viewers that do come like what they see and your Average Viewers is low, then that's more of a sign that your channel does not have enough exposure.
I don't think such a metric exists on Twitch yet, but I think it would be very useful to be able to see.
