You will find multiple Twitch badges attached to usernames while viewing a Twitch stream. Each of these badges has a different role and holds unique rankings for a Twitch streamer. You want to respect these as a user as many of the badges identify who is monitoring the chat and ensuring everything is going well while a stream is happening. Here’s what you need to know about all Twitch badges and what they mean.
All Twitch badges
These are all badges you might encounter while visiting a Twitch streamer’s chat.
Administration Staff Twitch badge
A user with the Administration Staff Twitch badge next to their name is a paid individual who monitors Twitch as a whole, responds to and reviews grief reports, and enforces the website’s Terms of Services.
Artist Twitch badge
When you see the Artist Twitch badge next to a user, they have recognized by the streamer as someone who has submitted and contributed to the channel in a creative way, such as providing emotes, overlays, or even a streamer’s avatar.

A user speaking in a Twitch stream with this icon, the Broadcaster Twitch badge, is the one hosting the Twitch Steam and is the person you’re watching.
