I’m working on an application that greets new followers. While I’m aware of
GET /channels/:channel/follows, there’s a lot of overhead involved with getting the results from the request, constantly requesting it
Maybe more of a feature request than anything, but could follows be broadcast via PubSub rather than me having to regularly scrape an API endpoint?
I get that it’s not a big deal and I can code around it, but it seems like such a lighter weight option than all of the overhead that comes with polling the twitch API.
Is PubSub really that heavy on Twitch compared to having to scrape the API?
