Bot Chat Badge
A chat badge to identify yourself in Twitch chat as a bot.
Twitch has been allowing users to mark accounts as Known and Verified bots for a few years now. This process is explained in detail in the official developer documentation. This is documented here: https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/irc/guide#known-and-verified-bots
There are more than 18,065 Known Bots on Twitch. Among them, we are also a Verified Bot used by more than 700,000 streamers.
We get all DMs in Slack channels and regularly check how users interact with our Verified Bot. Unfortunately, we often find that users mistake the account for a real lurker, viewer or even a fake viewer. This sometimes leads to incorrect blocking and malfunction of our chatbot.
A badge would also allow users to more quickly identify that the account is a bot. Sometimes our bot writes messages like "Join my Discord at..." and users/mods think that someone just did self-promotion.
Highlights of our DMs:
- I gave warnings that people in chat that weren't watching the stream would be banned.
- Y u still watching me lol
- who are you
- hey thanks for coming i hoped u enjoyed
- are you a bot?
Came here to suggest this for the same reasons.
Often people will confuse a bot for the broadcaster, and if it sends a message saying to follow the channel for a reward, then we get those conversations that don't make any sense on support servers for those bots where people complain that they didn't get their reward despite the follow.
Made a quick badge for it if you want: https://i.imgur.com/g4zdpiP.png
