As the title suggests, I want to check the number of followers of multiple channels (broadcasters) at the same time.
I know that other GET APIs allow you to continue adding parameters by treating them with &.
As you said.
Although many endpoints support specifying multiple entities,
The “helix/channels/followers” endpoint I mentioned at the beginning not only does not support multiple broadcasters…
I couldn’t find any other endpoints that could check a broadcaster’s total number of followers.
When Googling, I found that the API before Helix actually provided better features.
Although everyone is waiting for that time
Twitch is still not providing it.
Perhaps, in order to implement this function, I have to collect slowly over a long period of time due to rate-limit,
I can picture users being disappointed by this lengthy collection process and the fact that data is not updated quickly…
I think I’ll have to stop looking for a better way.
Thank you for answering to the end.
it was unclear you were being specific about followers information your question was written in a general way
if you have broadcaster (or moderator) authentication of the channels in question EventSub can be used to notify you of new followers and you can increase the total that way, then periodicially resync to account for unfollows/bot removals
Broadly speaking followers is a useless metric and doesn’t really tell you anything about the channel.
There are other metrics that might be of more use, but it depends on what you are trying to do/what your product does. Theres a bunch of possibilties that could be of use.
