Discord, apart from being a community communication platform, also allows users to receive notifications from various social media platforms through third-party bots. This enables all members of Discord servers to stay updated with the latest information. This article will explain how to use the MEE6 bot to receive livestream notifications from a specified Twitch account.
Introduction to the MEE6 Bot
MEE6 is a versatile bot on Discord that offers over 30 plugins. Users can choose which plugins to enable based on their needs. Some plugins are available for free users, but they may have certain limitations and unlocking the full version may require upgrading to a premium account. Others are exclusively available to premium users.

Twitter Alerts plugin Setup Tutorial
Step 1: Invite MEE6 to your Discord server
First, go to the MEE6 website and invite the bot to your server. The invitation process for all bots is the same, but remember that your Discord account needs to have the “Manage Server” or “Administrator” permission for the server in order to invite the bot. Otherwise, you won’t be able to send an invitation.
Additionally, before inviting the bot, you need to log in to your Discord account. If you’re not logged in, the system will redirect you to the Discord login interface.

Step 2: Enable Twitter Alerts plugin
After successfully inviting the MEE6 bot to your server, go to the MEE6 website backend and enable the “Twitter Alerts” plugin. If you want to disable this plugin later, you can use the same method to turn off Twitter Alerts.

If you created a new Discord channel while having the Mee6 web backend open, remember to press F5 to refresh the page or wait a few minutes before trying again.
