Twitch emote with differents characters?

Is the Twitch emote claimable only for one character??? Wouldn’t it make more sense if it were for the account?
Does anyone know if it’s possible to claim it with other characters or if you’ve deleted the first character, have you lost the emoticon?

I’d love to know that too, I still haven’t claimed mine. I thought it would be account bound, but after seeing people ask this question, I kept mine unclaimed.
