Gaming / Streaming communities
If you want to niche down for certain game/s and find new cool folks to play with. Gaming communities are really good for that! This also helps you to transfer to other games easier when the whole group is doing changes for another game.
Be careful though! If you go around and be a lazy douche just posting your live stream on these places, your most likely going to get instant ban and a lot of hatred. Be friendly and get to know people in the gaming community and then tell them your streaming also 🙂 How to find Game Specific communities? Click here..

Re-tweeting services are really good way to get your stream out more for other people. You need to usually always follow these places back so that they will send the re-tweet though. So keep that in mind 😉
Re-tweet Services / Best Practices / Use only 2 - 3 per tweetToo many re-tweet services can cause your tweet look spammy. Quality of the tweet is more important for your current viewers and new possibly interested viewers than quantity of re-tweet services used.
