My bot account has been unable to send a lot of my viewers whispers. (though some other viewers receive its whispers fine.) The API responds with HTTP 204 as usual, but the messages get silently dropped. Maybe twitch thinks its against ToS? though my bot only really whispers to send regulars of my stream game passwords to join me on stream to play with me. And only after doing a command in my regular stream chat. It has never contacted people who haven’t interacted with my stream chat. It receives whispers from anyone just fine.
my bot’s name is catbot_maid
A lot of people are unable to receive whispers from my bot.
- I’ve made sure recipients have their settings set to allow for whispers.
- I’ve tried sending whispers through the twitch website, and it appears to be sent, but its gone after a refresh and the recipient never receives it either.
- It doesn’t even work after recipients sending my bot a whisper first.
- I’ve tried asking Twitch Support about it but they’ve been less than helpful.
I need help. I just want my bot being able to send whispers again to everyone.
