The TwitchTV Webhooks API allows your application to subscribe to events, and receive notifications that happen on Twitch. This includes a system that allows you to subscribe to a topic and be notified when new data comes in for that topic. Webhook response payloads mimic their respective New Twitch API endpoint responses and returns in its payload the same data as a call to the corresponding endpoint. Twitch will send you an HTTP request with the event data, when new data comes in. You can use this push model to load balance or proxy requests. Twitch is a video platform and community for gamers and developers that want to learn how to build tools and integrations for social video platforms.
