Hello from the Pococha Team! Thank you for using Pococha.
Today, we’ll be talking about the upcoming end to linked Twitter features (broadcast announcement tweets, hashtag tweets, and the “Share This on Twitter” button).
This is part of our response to recent Twitter changes. Click the link for more details.
– Broadcast announcement tweets: Automatically post a tweet when a broadcast starts.
– Hashtag tweets (A4 Rank broadcasters and above): Hashtags added to broadcasts are posted on Twitter every 15 minutes.
– “Share This on Twitter” button: Share broadcasts directly to Twitter when live.
Week of April 17
* We will make an announcement when the features have been removed.
Sharing on Social Media
Instead of only being able to live share broadcasts to Twitter, users will continue to be able to share broadcasts on different social media platforms (including Twitter).
[How to Live Share Your Broadcasts]
1. Tap the “^” button on the bottom left of the broadcasting screen.
2. Tap “Share this Broadcast”.
3. Choose the social media you want to share to.
* Your broadcaster name, broadcast title, link, etc. will automatically be added.
* You can still share to Twitter.
In order to live share your broadcasts, you will need to update to the latest app version (TBA).
If you have not updated to the latest app version, you may get an error when you tap “Share to Twitter”.
As Twitter continues to change, these features may stop working earlier than planned. The features may still show up on Pococha even though they cannot send tweets. These buttons will disappear or change after updating to the latest app version.
If features end earlier than planned, we will make an announcement.
We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
If you are using a Twitter account to log in to Pococha, please follow the instructions below as soon as possible to link other social media Accounts.
Due to recent changes from Twitter (X Corporation), the ability to log in with Twitter is no longer available for some services. This problem has not affected Pococha yet, but it may affect us in the future.
* Please click here for the latest update on how Pococha is handling the issue.
How to link your Apple or Google account
① Update the app
From the Apple Store or Google Play Store, search for “Pococha” and update the app to “version 5.29.3” or higher.
* If the version is not reflected in the app store, please check back at a later time.
② Open your settings from your profile.
Tap your account in the upper left corner of the home screen, and then click the gear mark in the upper right corner to open your settings.
③ Select “Link new” from “Link New Account”.
* If the “Link New Account” button does not appear, it may be due to one of the following reasons:
・The version of Pococha is below 5.29.2.
Please update Pococha and try again.
・You do not log in with Twitter (LINE, Google account, etc.).
You are not eligible for linking multiple accounts.
④ Sign in with one of the following accounts.
*As of app version 5.29.3, LINE and Facebook have been added, and the OS restriction on linking a Google account or Apple ID has been removed.
* If you are experiencing sign-in errors, the following are possible causes:
・The Apple account or Google account is already linked to another Pococha account.
Please create a new Apple or Google account and try again.
・The version of Pococha is below 5.29.2.
Please update Pococha and try again.
・You do not log in with Twitter (LINE, Google account, etc.).
You are not eligible for linking multiple accounts.
Please link additional accounts as soon as possible by following the above.
Q. What should I do if my Apple or Google account is linked to another Pococha account?
A. Please create a new Apple account or Google account on your own.
Q. If my current account is linked to an SNS account other than Twitter, can I link it to my Google account?
A. No, you cannot. This is an emergency response for those who are linked with Twitter, so those who are currently linked with other SNS accounts such as LINE or Apple accounts will not be able to use this function.
Q. How do I create a Google account or Apple ID?
A. Please contact each company’s support for information on how to create a Google account or Apple ID.
This is an important notice for users who have linked their Pococha account to Twitter. Please be sure to read carefully.
Due to recent decisions & actions made by Twitter (X corporation), some 3rd party services (like Pococha) are no longer able to use Twitter’s log in function.
Although this problem has not occurred with Pococha yet, it may happen in the future. Therefor it may be possible that if users log out, they will not be able to log back in via Twitter.
This may cause users with only a twitter login to be unable to access their account.
This is due to Twitter’s (X corporation’s) actions, and while Pococha team cannot predict when the problem will occur, we are doing everything we can to ensure that all Pococha users can use our service with peace of mind.
In this blog, we will update the latest information on “What should users do?” and “How is Pococha handling the issue?”.
What should users do?
In the future, you may not be able to log into Pococha using Twitter. Please link your other accounts additionally for backup!
Please refer to the following article for instructions
If you use Twitter to log in to Pococha, please do not log out of Pococha!
If you switch accounts, you may not be able to log in to your original account again!
To avoid being automatically logged out of Pococha, please do not buy a new device or delete the app.
What happens if you are logged out and unable to connect Pococha to Twitter?
You will not be able to use services that require you to log in to Pococha until the issue is resolved.
You will not be able to broadcast or watch broadcasts
Even on the last day of the event, you may not be able to broadcast or watch broadcasts. Please be aware of the above when entering the event and becoming a Poco Knight.
You will not be able to apply for diamond cash-out.
How is Pococha handling the issue?
We are working on urgent measures to prevent users from being unable to log in using Twitter.
As one of the countermeasures, we are developing a function that allows you to link multiple SNS accounts to a single Pococha account. Once it is developed and released, we will inform everyone of the linkage procedure, so please take action!
We plan for this feature to allow Twitter login users to login using an alternative SNS. But we must develop this feature first, and we are doing so as quickly as possible.
This update is necessary for future support on the Pococha side. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter. We will give the highest priority of our attention & work to minimizing the impact on users and ensuring that you can continue to use Pococha with peace of mind.
We will announce further information on this matter in the form of updates to this blog and other announcements. If you would like to receive the latest updates, please check for new notifications in the Pococha app.
Behind every A5 broadcaster is a Family that works day and night to lift them and their community to the stars. But how does this kind of Family operate, and how can viewers have this sort of impact?
To learn more about this, we interviewed A5 broadcaster CEO of Cougartown and one of her most dedicated Family members, Bratlord!
CEO and her powerful community have won numerous events and titles. Now, she’s known as one of the top broadcasters on the app! Let’s take a look at how that came to be.
Welcome, CEO of Cougar Town and Bratlord! It is great to have you here today! So, CEO: you’re pretty famous on the app for having one of the most hard-working and dedicated Families around. Can you tell me about your Family?
CEO of Cougar Town:
Yes! I have to say, my Family members are awesome. We became really close with each other while spending so much time together on this app. They’ve genuinely become my real family. I care about them so much that I literally know everything about my Family members, and what’s going on in their daily lives. They are always in my broadcast to pick me up when I’m having bad days, and I’m always here to lift them up in return if they need it. Our bond is so tight.
We’ve also gone through so many competitions and events together. They support me so much that I really feel I need to be successful for them, to repay them for all they do for me! They always tell me “I believe in you!” and “If anyone can do it, you can!”, so losing just isn’t an option. I refuse to let them down. I think that mindset is what’s helped us all find success as a collective.
It’s not just about the Items, though — many people don’t realize that from the outside looking in. I want my Family to know that our friendship is always first when it comes to this app. I want and need them to be a part of my life, and to experience this wild journey with me. It wouldn’t be happening without them. So I always appreciate the folks who show up to my broadcasts every day, even if they can’t support me with Coins!
Was there any specific turning point where you remember thinking, “Wow, I couldn’t have done this without them”?
CEO of Cougar Town:
I always wanted to try going for a Hall of Fame event. When I found out about the Hall of Fame in LA, I knew that was my shot to make it; it’s my hometown, so it was most meaningful for me. Thanks to my Family members that showed up in a MASSIVE way, I won the Hall of Fame event and got to be on a billboard! As if that win wasn’t enough, someone from an agency approached me after seeing this win and offered me a contract with them. I was SO shocked!
So, at my age, here I am signing with an agency, and getting a chance to be in commercials again. That’s wild.Now I have this new door reopened for me by coming to Pococha. The previous streaming apps I’ve tried never had this sort of impact. And this is all thanks to this amazing community we’ve built together here! That was the biggest moment for me, but there have been so many others since.
Thank you so much, CEO of Cougar Town! Wow, that is such an amazing story. It’s incredible that your dreams are coming true all over again — and most importantly, that your Family members are the ones who lifted you up to get there!
Let’s dive deeper into the story of your tight-knit Family to see how this came to be.
Thanks for joining the interview, Bratlord! So, you’re one of CEO of Cougartown’s biggest supporters. We noticed that you and your fellow Family members work together to support CEO as a community. Can you tell me what you do to support her?
Sure. So, we all support Mia (aka CEO of Cougar Town) but in various ways. Of course we need to support her with Items, but we don’t stop there.
For example, I will never be a social director, but I will always be a technical advisor in her Family to help any new viewers who struggle to understand the app. This is because I’m good at learning how mechanisms and systems work. I read every blog and any information the Pococha staff provides. I’m pretty sure I could literally host the Round Table for you guys! (laughs)
I also observe the Rank Meter and read all the available literature on how it functions. I’ve gotten to estimate pretty accurately how the Meter will slide for the day, and always help Mia strategize as to how much we need to achieve her daily goal.
Also, we’ve developed a channel called Ask the Brat, where new people can ask any questions they have about the app, and I’ll step in to answer. This is the role I can best play, so it makes me happy to have this outlet that also helps Mia to find more success.
To be honest, though, I get overwhelmed in social situations sometimes, and I’m not so good at contributing in the comments. But there are other viewers who are much better in that department. Each of the Family members contributes to the broadcast according to their strengths.
Wow, that is amazing! You have such a robust system in place. Can you tell me some more about the other Family members and their roles?
Sure — like I said, each of the family members contributes to Mia as they can. But it’s not all through Items. We all try to capitalize on our own skills to improve the whole. For example, Angie is the greeter; she welcomes in new viewers a lot. Mrs. Robinson gets the whole hype thing, so she makes sure everyone’s having fun communicating and helps the stream energy stay up. Dave is the biggest feeler; he holds the heart of the broadcast, and helps to support other viewers who are going through a tough time. It’s like a real community.
This is only a small part of the Family, though; we all do much more, and step in to help wherever needed. The important thing is to contribute what you can.
Thank you so much Bratlord! Lastly: what makes you and the other Family members want to do all these things?
It’s simple, honestly. We want to see Mia succeed, and see her professional success. I’m invested in making that happen. If there is anybody that I feel is deserving in life, it’s Mia. That is a general consensus within our Family; we all want her to take off, because we see how hard she works and know the potential in her. Everything we get from Mia is 100% authentic and honest. She cares about us, learns about us, talks to us, and supports us in return. That’s why we all come back, and why the bond has grown there. It’s a real Family.
CEO of Cougar Town:
I can’t just let him have the last word here either! (laughs) Bratlord is right; the Family is just so special. We’ve shared laughter and tears, ups and downs, and they’ve been by my side every step of the way. You don’t realize until you’re in it just what a massive impact it can have on your life. It’s the most beautiful gift anyone could ever have, this friendship I have found on Pococha. They’ve been there for every day with me, and now I can’t imagine a day without them being part of my life. They’re never getting rid of me — like Brat said, we’re real Family now!
That is so sweet, and so insightful! Thank you!
Our thanks to CEO of Cougartown and Bratlord for these insights into their incredible community!
Viewers and broadcasters, take note: with a bit of collaboration, communication, and heart, this type of Family could be yours too! ❤️
Want to help grow Pococha’s amazing community, and have a chance to earn Coins too?
Introducing the updated “Refer A Friend” Campaign! The campaign will be returning on April 1, 2023.
Here on Pococha, our community comes first. And what better way to continue bringing in amazing people than to invite our friends!
We’ve created a new referral code system so that when your friend joins Pococha, you’ll have the chance to both win 5,000 Coins each in a monthly giveaway.
Inviters, here’s how it works:
Find your unique invite code on Pococha
Send it to your friends & family
Your amazing friends download & join Pococha
The invited user inputs your code and will receive an entry into the monthly Coin giveaway
If your invited user wins, the you do as well!
At the beginning of each month, 50 invitees will be chosen randomly from that month’s entries to receive 5,000 Coins. The user who invited (inviter) will also win 5,000 Coins for each of their invitees that wins that month.
How Can I Increase My Chances?
Invited users can increase their chances of winning by completing the following activities:
Receive 1 entry when the new user downloads Pococha and enters your code
Receive 3 entries when the new user becomes a 1K Core Fan for the first time
Receive 10 entries when the new user makes their first in-app purchase of Coins.
Encourage your invited users to complete all 3 actions to have the highest chance of winning. Remember, for each of your invited users that win the giveaway – you do too!
In order to receive ticket entries, the new user must input your code within 7 days of downloading the app. A maximum of 20 invite codes can be redeemed by new users.
How To Find Your Invite Code:
Open your Pococha app.
Tap your profile icon at the top left of the app.
Click the Preferences icon in the top right of your account page.
Click “Invite Code”.
Copy the code and send it to your friends!
How To Input Code & Receive Coins:
Have your friend download Pococha & create an account.
On their account page, they can click Preferences icon and then click “Input Invite Code”.
Once they input the code successfully, a notification will be sent to both the invitee and inviter.
If the invited user completes the additional tasks for more entries, a notification will also be sent to both.
Winners of the monthly giveaway will receive a notification that they have won.
The “Refer A Friend” Campaign is designed to bring in quality users, not just anyone!
Current Pococha users can have up to 40 new users input their invite code. Choose wisely!
The number of invites used will be carried over from the previous version of the program. If an inviter has already had some new users use their code, they will not be able to use that many for the new program.
Current Pococha users must be level 20 or higher to be eligible for the program and send codes.
Invited users can only enter a code once to be eligible for the monthly giveaway. Once they enter an input code, they will not be able to input another.
To be eligible for the monthly giveaway, the invited user must input the invite code within 7 days of joining the app.
1K Core Fan status is achieved by reaching 1000 Fan Noise in a broadcaster’s livestreams. This can be achieved by using a specified amount of Coins, comments, and a specific length of watching. Please read the 1K Core Fan requirements HERE.
Pococha is using a fraud-detection system that prohibits and prevents self-referrals. Any new users that are identified as fraud will be removed from the monthly giveaway.
The “Refer A Friend” Campaign is subject to change without notice.
Let’s get started inviting friends! Post your code & invitation link on your social profiles, text your friends, or whatever!
If you experience any issues with the “Refer A Friend” campaign, please contact customer service inside the Pococha app. This can be found by typing “Contact Us” on the Help page of your profile.
Thank you for helping us grow our amazing community!
