Due to the way Twitch secures things, it doesn't like one site talking to another, which means any program that is hosted in the cloud can't get certain info. If I made a local version, I'd be able to grab that data without issue.
The work around I found is that most local chatbots will post a message, such as "Thanks for the 10 bits!" into the chat. So my cloud bot will scan for such a sentence, then can trigger events based on seeing that message appear.
Unless I misunderstood what you meant.
