IRC Landing page/guide -> twitchapps.com
As a getting started/IRC docs landing page is confusing new developers
As it references
The token to authenticate your chatbot with Twitch's servers. Generate this with https://twitchapps.com/tmi/ (a Twitch community-driven wrapper around the Twitch API), while logged in to your chatbot account. The token will be an alphanumeric string.
And doesn't reference anything about the "right way" to auth/scopes needed
Until the end of the guide.
Authentication using not a third party site should be more prevalent in the guide.
