View Purchased Super Chats & Super Stickers

Super Chats & Super Stickers show as colored chat messages and animated images in your live chat feed. When a viewer buys a Super Chat or Super Sticker, their profile picture can stay on top of the live chat feed. The length of time depends on their purchase amount. The more a viewer spends, the longer Super Chats or Super Stickers stay at the top of the chat feed.
