What is a VIP Badge?
A VIP Badge is a badge that is given to viewers to recognise them as a VIP of a particular Channel.
What are they for?
Twitch VIP badges are a way for streamers like you to recognise the members of your streaming community. Streamers have to complete the build a community achievement on Twitch to unlock VIP Slots, which is essentially just 50 followers and having five unique chatters in your stream at one time. 10 VIP slots will get unlocked after completing the assigned task.
As you build more community, more VIP badges you will unlock to issue out to all valuable members of your community.
Precisely, getting 10/15/20/25/50/100/200 unique chatters in a stream will unlock 20/30/40/50/80/100 additional VIP badges.
What can you do with them?
Being a VIP on a channel means a lot more than just having a shiny new badge. It actually comes with some unique perks.
Benefits of a VIP Badge:

VIP VS MOD
VIP viewers are immune to Twitch chat option settings including Automod, and slow/sub-only/follower-only modes. VIPs don’t have access to any moderation functions. But they are exempt from slow- or sub only-mode.
Moderators (also known as mods) make sure that there are no offensive posts and spam that mislead the conversation. They need to take care that the chat meets the behaviour and content standards set by the broadcaster.
How to identify MODS?
Mods can be identified by the green sword icon in the chat that appears next to their name.
A VIP command is the command that is used to display all the VIPs for the specific channel. This command is helpful for the Streamers, so that you can keep an eye on the VIPs.
The Command is: /vips
