Twitch and furry[edit]

Twitch has an extensive furry user base consisting of Let's Players, VTubers, artists and other creatives. Twitch added a "Furry" stream tag to the platform during an overhaul of the tagging system on May 26, 2021, which also added new tags for VTubers and the LGBTQ+ community.[1]

Individual Twitch streamers are able to band together into multi-channel networks named Twitch Teams. Examples of furry-oriented Twitch Teams include Wild Abandon and Miscreants.

A number of online furry conventions have taken place place partially or wholly via Twitch. The Funday PawPet Show started broadcasting on Twitch in 2019.
