Discussion on: Let's make a Twitch bot with Python!

I keep trying to run the bot but get the error: KeyError: 'jordo1'.

asyncio.exceptions.TimeoutError: Request to join the "jordo1" channel has timed out. Make sure the channel exists.

My channel certainly exists. I tried it with both Python 3.7 and 3.8. My code is basically the same, but I made my own class inheriting Bot instead.

I regenerated my oauth and reconfirmed my client ID.

Please help. Driving me nuts for hours.

Edit: Just realized the bot is working but this error still appears despite joining the channel. Strange. The nick isn't working though, it's just using my twitch username.

I'm getting the same error and resolution. And I can't get any of the bot.command functions to work, even with copy/pasting the code given here. If I fold it inside the event_message function it works, but not as its own thing.
