What is the user _id parameter actually used for

I have been doing stuff with the twitch api for a while now, and it seems that I never actually have needed a user’s unique identification(_id). I am just curious what twitch uses a user’s unique identification(_id) for?

User/channel names can change, the _id valve should be used to uniquely identify a user/channel.
