Register new View with Bot

I made a chat moderation mod and i thoguth about sth, but i cant do it, even its unnecessary.
I want, that when the bot enters the channel the viewercount rises by 1. But however i try it, i cant do it. I started a stream with 0 viewers and whenever i connect my bot, the viewers still are 0. Whats the problem or how do I tell Twitch, that the Bot counts as a viewer?

Chat bots aren’t viewing the stream, so aren’t a viewer, thus the viewer count wont rise.

Attempting to create a view bot is against the Twitch Developer agreement, and can result in account termination.
