    There needs to be a better system for suggesting streams to watch. I follow 18 streamers that consistently get less than 10 viewers, one who gets around 30 viewers, and only 5 who get well over a thousand. (I found 4 of those through their YouTube content and 1 through a friend).
    However, in my recommended channels right now, as I write this, there are 5 channels playing a game I've never watched content for, 1 playing a game I've never even heard of, 2 playing pokemon games, 1 playing geoguessr, and 1 doing art. 3 have over 1000 viewers, and only 1 has less than 100 viewers.
    Granted, this is better than it was, as I used to get suggested only Pokimane, Hasan, and streamers of similar calibre.
    But I have tons of friends who are all trapped below 10 viewers, one in particular who streams 4-6 days a week, and often for more than 3 hours.
    He has gotten a grand total of 2 new consistent viewers in the last couple of months. One discovered him from TikTok and the other WAS actually browsing the twitch page for Cooking Simulator. But seriously, he has been streaming almost every single day of the week for multiple hours at a time for nearly a year now and he gets 2 viewers for it.
    If anyone reading this is curious, he's Toridasushi, and he does variety gaming streams. He's very funny and is really good at riffing off of chat when it's being active.
    But yeah, I know there are people out there just like Sushi, who dedicate hours and hours to honing the skills required to be a streamer and getting near zero in return for all that work.

    This somewhat de-incentivizes subscribing, and those subbed get less value for it. I want to sub to get my emotes and give a little extra whenever possible.
    Subscribing is for regular, higher-value support, and bits and donations are for smaller, extra, random support of a streamer.
    That being said, with the new shift in how you pay partners, I think it would be a good idea to lower the cost of bits for the viewer while maintaining the payout to the streamer.
    This encourages viewers to contribute when they can, as it is more affordable, and gives individual streamers increased income without them having to run 6, minute-long, unskippable ads every hour in order to maintain their income and production value.
    Viewers do not like ads. You'll notice that the general opinion and satisfaction of people with a service tends to decrease significantly when advertisement increases. So implementing some other way for streamers to maintain their income while taking a relatively small hit to Twitch's income would be a very good idea.
    Reimplement bits, make them slightly more affordable, and do not cut from the content creators that make your platform what it is.
