Add "channel follows" as a topic in PubSub
Add a new topic in the PubSub API for new channel followers event, with the same behavior of the "Channel Subscriptions" topic.
I'm developing lightweight, simple to deploy, client-side alert notifications.
Using intermediary external webservers adds both network overhead as well as extra complexity.
This would be super helpful! I'm also developing a new tool where it will listen to some events and the follower event is such an important one!
I also have this request, as I am developing a desktop app and have no great way to get push events for new followers. PubSub supports topics for new cheers and new subs, but not new follows.
I realize there is a webhook for new followers, but it is not helpful in this circumstance. I have no public server in my design, and creating one just to act as an intermediary between webhooks and a desktop app seems excessive.
