You can do this process over again for every other username you want to check. The website does not restrict you to how many times you do this search.

Another website of such kind is also the TwitchDataBase website, so again open this site on a browser of your choice > type in the username in the white search bar > and press Enter.

Try an alternative method

The alternative method to find the date you started following someone on Twitch is done if the channel has activated Streamlabs. All you need to do is write the command “!followage” and the Streamlabs bot will respond with a message showing you the time you have started following that channel.

Also, you can type in someone’s username as an extension to this command. For example, “!followage username” to know your following time of that member with that particular username.

Why do streamers want to see how long they’ve been following someone on Twitch?

Primarily due to basic curiosity. In addition, perhaps, you’ve been following a channel for some time, and you feel like you should help them out with a donation or add a subscription.

Also, this might be the case when the channel or a streamer offers some sort of reward for loyal followers.

Are there advantages of following a streamer?

Of course, there are. It is very beneficial, especially for beginners on Twitch who are looking for an affiliate status on this platform. Furthermore, the Twitch accounts with many followers are likely to get sponsorships from different companies and joint sponsorship teams.
