This post will cover some of the most common Nightbot commands, how to make your commands, and some tips and tricks to get the best out of this fantastic tool.
What Does Nightbot Do?
Except, while Discord bots are created and used to moderate members and simplify tasks in your community, Twitch bots do it for your live streams. Chat moderation and keeping up with your audience’s requests while streaming and playing can be challenging.
Nightbot’s job is to make chat management easy for you so you can enjoy gaming. All you have to do is invite Nightbot to your live stream channel on Twitch and type in command names whenever necessary.
However, Nightbot has a wide array of commands available for the broadcaster themselves, mods, and users. You can also create custom commands for whatever task you want Nightbot to do.
Nightbot User Commands
If you’re viewing somebody else’s stream as a regular user, there are default commands you can use in the chat to access various features. Just type in the command name in the chat, and see the magic happen.

- Go to the Nightbot website and log in to your account.

- Click the “New Command” button.
- Enter a name for your command.
