A post on Medium revealed the following and explained the process.
You've just received a major upgrade to your Amazon Prime membership. You can now share select Twitch Prime loot with the community on Twitch and give viewers who aren't yet Prime a sneak peek of some of the awesome content they can expect to get from Twitch Prime. Starting today, Prime members can gift up to three extra copies of Dauntless loot, which unlocks the complete Desperado armor set, a purple dye, the Outlaw title, and a helpful supply pack with 30 Patrol Chests. Be on the lookout for additional loot to gift in upcoming weeks, including World of Tanks, Rainbow Six Siege, and more.
