Expose VIPs in the API
Yes please, getting them through chat adds extra complexity when catching notices. I'd love to have an endpoint for this.
I like this idea. I know that many streamers want to offer viewers "temporary VIP" for a certain channel point amount. As this capability isn't offered in the interface, exposing VIPs for a channel, plus the ability to set or add/remove VIPs would benefit developers who want to offer this functionality.
Similarly, the ability to get/set the modlist would streamline setup experience for Streamlabs, nightbot, etc. Even if this capability was locked to certain API clients that Twitch trusts.
This would be helpful to remember how many chats I'm VIP in or to lookup who is VIP in what channel and could see this be helpful in bot commands. PogChamp
