Allow channel moderators to control polls/predictions over the API
The endpoints announced earlier today ( https://discuss.dev.twitch.tv/t/announcing-apis-and-eventsub-for-polls-and-predictions/31539 ) should be usable by channel moderators so that third-party apps like Chatty can make use of them without the broadcaster needing to authenticate.
I completely agree, moderation is necessary, and so is a moderator, because without a quality moderator, the platform will not be able to perform its functions properly. When I worked as a moderator, I received OATH tokens https://protectimus.com/tokens/ from the company, which were awarded only to the best employees with more than two years of experience. In general, if you still need a moderator, I can help you by recommending my friend.
I just tried to do this without reading the fine print, and only got authorization errors back. We could really need this extended to moderators of the channel, so they can run tools and integrations that create polls/predictions on behalf of the streamer. The streamer has enough to do already, let the mods help out (over the API, without having to type commands by hand that is error prone)!
I just want to ask that can I integrate twitch with my website https://la-va.com.au/vacuum-seal-bags/? As we all know that twitch is going to be very famous in the coming days so that's why I want to integrate it.
I would love to be able to use a modded bot account that can automatically create predictions based on in-game events through this.
Would be a great thing to have
Mods have, through the UI, an equivalent to this scope. Is this not something that can be expedited as the API is, essentially, not useful for big streamers as we end up losing granularity of who is doing what?

Hi Louis, thank you for the feedback. We are considering this request and may add these scopes in the future.
Sounds good, and it would be even more useful if mods (and regular users, but in this context at the very least mods) could also receive real-time updates on polls/predictions through websockets, so they can see both what other mods are doing and the effect of their own actions. Currently it seems EventSub only supports webhooks, so I'm not sure what category to even post that suggestion in though if it was supposed to be a separate suggestion.
Would definitely be a very useful improvement
