Quite a while ago I have written a script which gets my followers and exports it to a file. The script worked fine until October 11th. Since then it does not work reliable anymore, most request are simply timing out without ever returning a result. I don’t see any reason or problem on my side, I tried this from different IP addresses and via different internet connections / from different servers.
My request URL is https://api.twitch.tv/helix/users/follows?to_id=MYUSERID&first=100 (and in subsequent request with &after=CURSOR added). For a while the first two or three requests (so the initial and then one or two followups with a cursor added) went through and then it stopped working, but lately not even the first request gets a result. I also tried it with lower values for first to no avail.
So what is going on here? How can this be broken for over 1 1/2 months now?
PS: It also does not work when using v5-API.
