Twitch is a growing platform that is especially popular among gamers and video streamers who like to create content about specific things that people like and enjoy. A subsidiary of Amazon, Twitch was launched in 2011 and has about 15 million daily active users.
While this number seems relatively low in comparison to YouTube’s 2 billion and Instagram’s 1 billion, 15 million is still a lot of people, and can help brands and businesses tap into new audiences.
For this reason, people have been looking to expand their social media presence to Twitch as well. Along with this desire has come the social media growth companies claiming to offer the most effective Twitch growth options on the market.
Most services like this are simply trying to jump on the bandwagon and capture some extra pocket money through selling followers and engagements that don’t do much of anything, and this is unfortunately the dark side of the social media growth market.
For this reason, you should exercise extreme caution when buying social media engagements and followers, Twitch included. One company, Views.run, provides followers and engagements specifically for Twitch through the use of bots.
We’ve heard about this service a few times, so we decided to review it and see if they can actually do anything to help your Twitch account. The more info you have, the better, so hopefully this review will give you some insight on the views.run service and whether or not it’s a good option for your account.
Let’s take a look!
How Does it Work?
View.run doesn’t shy away from the fact that they offer bots for Twitch. They straight up say that they offer a variety of different bots on the platform, so I guess they don’t think it’s a big deal.
For almost anyone else on the internet, however, it’s pretty bold. Bots are notorious for being ineffective for any type of social media growth and can actually harm your account in a variety of ways. In any case, we’re still going to check out Views.run and see exactly how their bots work.
It’s very strange, because when you use a bot to gain social media followers and engagements, you don’t select how much you want. But with Views.run, they prompt you to select the delivery speed in terms of how many engagements you’ll get per hour.
For example, for clip views, you have to select how many you’re going to receive per hour. For followers, you have to select the delivery speed, which means when you purchase will be complete. It doesn’t say anything about how many followers you’ll actually gain. It’s a very odd system.
Not only that, you don’t just purchase the “bot” package upfront, you have to first buy payment “keys” and then enter the code when you check out. It’s really an unnecessary headache and makes the whole process confusing and muddy. People aren’t even really sure what they’re buying or how much they need to purchase to fulfill their packages. It’s very poorly designed.
Top-rated Growth Tools for Twitch
In terms of features, Views.run doesn’t get any better. They have a variety of bots, but how the bot works to increase each type of engagement isn’t even mentioned. There are bots for Twitch.tv Viewers and Chat, Twitch.tv Channel Views, Twitch.tv Followers, Twitch.tv Clip Views, and Twtich.tv VOD views.
We are uninclined, however, to believe that these features actually deliver trustworthy results. When you go to the Views.run website, the first thing that pops up is this message: “The Live Viewers service is currently experiencing under delivery issues for some sessions, we are working on resolving the issue. We are sorry for the inconvenience”
First of all, not well written. But other than that, it doesn’t really make sense. This message has been on the website for months, by the way, so they haven’t been resolving anything. What happens to people who have already bought that service?
All in all, the features of Views.run are not clearly explained, they’re not easy to purchase, and the website gives very little information about the company and the services overall.
Customers Aren’t Happy
The final thing that we’ve noticed about Views.run is that their customers are really dissatisfied with the service. If you check out their Trustpilot, they don’t even have 3 stars. Every single review is either poor, or bad. 86% of the reviews are as bad as they can get.
There have been reports of bad service, absolutely no delivery, as well as credit card fraud. This really goes to show that Views.run offers nothing valuable, and is most likely a scam. If you’re not convinced by Trustpilot, you can also check out various feeds on other websites such as Reddit that discuss the terrible service offered by Views.run.
Remember that under-delivery message that appears on their homepage for their live video views bot? Well, it’s not just that bot that under delivers. None of their bots deliver and they literally do nothing on your account.
Conversely, you’ll see some scenarios where the bot sends views on views on views and people immediately can tell that you’re using a bot. This is really bad for your account, brings absolutely no results, and can even get you flagged on Twitch.
The support team won’t help, they won’t resolve the issue, and they will not refund you. Seriously, stay away.
As you can see from the customer reviews, Views.run is bad. It is not only a poorly designed service that is run ineffectively, it can literally put your account and personal information in danger.
It’s best to avoid companies that use bots and auto engagements, as these are never effective and they are typically hard for companies to control. Views.run is pretty much a perfect example of a horrible growth service that will do nothing at all for your Twitch.
Stick with more reputable services that can actually deliver on their promises and not one that is looking to take advantage of unwitting customers with good intentions. Views.run is a serious waste of time, and more importantly, money.
