I’m writing an IRC bot, and I was surprised to see there were no “new_follower” msg-id. What then is the preferred way of detecting a new follow?
I can preemptively hammer
https://api.twitch.tv/helix/users/follows?to_id= and look at the “totals” field, monitoring it for changes, but even with a few seconds in between that’s a lot of requests.
Is there a better way?
