Your Twitch competition’s followers. Check out this figure to see how their community is growing.
The number of streams they did in the time period you chose. This can be important if their success is tied to the number of live streams they do.
Clips are part of a channel’s popularity. Although the streamer can make them, having lots of clips says more about their community of followers and viewers.
Views are the foundation of the channel’s success. It is a key metric to know how your channel is doing, or your Twitch competition.
