Twitch mods will make your life a lot easier if you’re a streamer. Though the presence of auto mods is helpful, nothing can help your stream from being inundated with trolls like a human moderator. Mods help tidy up your chat, get rid of users who are being toxic, and generally make your stream a more welcoming place. How to mod someone on Twitch in 2019 isn’t difficult, even if you’re going to have to put some thought into who deserves those modding powers. Let’s take a look at how to make someone a mod on Twitch.

How to unmod someone on Twitch 2019
You must choose your Twitch mods carefully, as they’ll be the ones overseeing your chat while you’re streaming and ensuring that things are in order. Picking people that are going to be reliable and enforce your channel’s rules is a must; you can even customize your chat rules under Chat Options in Channel & Videos, ensuring that mods and viewers alike know what you expect from them.
However, there will come a time when you need to unmod someone on Twitch. Whether you’re just doing a spot of spring cleaning and clearing out inactivate accounts from your moderation team, or a mod hasn’t followed your rules, the process of unmodding someone is as simple as modding them.
To unmod an account, you need to do the following:
- Navigate to your Twitch chat room.
- Type ‘/unmod’ followed by the account’s username, i.e. ‘/unmod Game_Revolution.’
After doing this, the account will no longer be a moderator, though you can add them as a mod again at any point.
