Viewcount should ONLY include people who are in the channel
Twitch currently allows rampant view-botting because the view count includes embedded twitch apps in external websites. This creates a huge imbalance and unfair playing field for streamers who dont cheat.
Nobody watches streams from external websites. They go there for info on any topic and are automatically counted as a viewer. Just think of the ways this can be exploited. I see it all the time on Twitch.
The biggest way people discover streams is by who has the highest view count. This is a critical number that should be honest.
After you fix this part of viewbotting, then we can focus on the fake viewers that are in the channel, but take care of this first. Thanks
