Add v5 "Get Followed Streams" endpoint to Helix
The Helix API currently has no way of retrieving a particular users online channels they are following. This is done by the "Get Followed Streams" API in v5 (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/streams#get-followed-streams)
To get the same behavior in the current Helix endpoints would require TENS of requests each time you wanted to check for the presence of a channel coming online/going offline, instead of the nice single endpoint v5 offers.
I've requested this endpoint for a few years now and was told v5 and Helix will have parity before v5 is officially shutdown, so I hope that's still the case.
This can be achieved by using the Stream Changed Webhook https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/webhooks-reference#topic-stream-changed

That is NOT acceptable to limit this API endpoint to Webhooks only. My application is for desktop and that application does not have any support to operate as a server on a home users machine to be able to accept callbacks.
I know many others who would be in agreement that limiting this endpoint to Webhook only is not the right choice.
