Twitch Terms

Lurk / Lurking

The act of leaving the streamer's video playing and turning the audio off, therefore giving the streamer 1 view counted towards the total current views.

Simp / Simping

New term to describe people who are enamored / obsessed with a particular streamer. There is no sexual or romantic connotation, but simply describes someone as being a really big fan of a content creator.

Mald / Malding

Describes when someone is so mad, they are balding. Mad + Balding = Malding.

Raid / Raiding

The best way for streamers to meet others is by "raiding" another streamer. This is an action that can only be performed when a streamer is live. When a streamer raids another streamer, the Twitch platform redirects everybody to the new streamer's URL which essentially "brings" everybody to that streamers page. The platform then notifies the raided streamer of the raid. Raids then become hosted on the raiding streamer's channel.

Host / Hosting

The best way for streamers to let people know about other streamers while they are offline. If people visit a streamer's page that is hosting someone, you will see someone else's streamer being played.

A clip is a video segment that can be cut out of the main stream and has a maximum length of 60 seconds. Clips can be used to share your favorite/funniest moments for streamers you watch. You can also clip your own stream while streaming. Note: Clips are content which means they are also under DMCA rules.

VOD / Highlight

Video on Demand (VOD) is a video of your entire stream session and can be automatically saved if you turn on the setting in your Twitch Creator Dashboard settings. VODs will expire and be deleted after 14 days for everybody who is an Affiliate and below. A highlight is a sub-video of the entire VOD and is longer than a clip (60s). Highlights are helper for sharing/saving longer durations of content that don't fit inside clips.
