How you should pick your Twitch Mod?
First and foremost is that you need to pick someone who is decent and can make decisions without a doubt. If some of your viewers get into some sort of misbehaviour the mod should make it clear and speak independently.
The Twitch mod should speak clearly and do things in a simplest way, that everyone will understand. A simple sentence is means more than just speaking without rhyme. Be clear why they did that, or why they decided like that.
Last but not least, you community is the most important assets in your career, If they not managed well, or they feal like they are not part of the show, they will going to another channel, with just a click.
How many mod you need?
There’s no numbers that are curved in the stone. But we can say, that after an average 100+ viewers you should have at least one moderator, who is helping you daily. After that your chat speed and your viewer base should determine how many mod you need. Probably every 100-200 viewers you need one mod to help manage the chat.
