Receive chat message via IRC down?

Hello, i have a irc chatbot to read chat messages and after to animate in webpage. My app worked for the past 2 months but since friday i can’t even log in : NOTICE * :Login authentication failed
Do i juste have to wait the end of the “Reviews for Extensions” or do i have to create a new chatbot with new token ?
Thanks for help,
Have a good day !

The Authentication docs,, explain the various types of OAuth token and how to get them. You’ll need to get a new token each time the one you’re using expires.

The pause on Extension reviews does not impact this at all.

This soulds like you used an implict grant token

Which lasts around 60 days aka 2 months.

I generally use a code flow token, which generate a token and a refresh token.
And my bot will refresh at (re)connect to chat. (and periodically if I need that token to be alive during a connection)

See also the validate endpoint Validating Tokens | Twitch Developers for checking if your token is valid.
