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

FOR THOSE HAVING "Make sure channel exists." make sure your "BOT_NICK" is the name of your bot account. Also make sure the "CHANNEL" is the name of the channel you're trying to join. For "BOT_PREFIX" I just put the same name as my bot_NICK. If this works let me know! I had spent some time on this issue because of the confusion on this discussion post.

For anybody reading, BOT_PREFIX should be the prefix used for your bot commands. Most often on Twitch, bot commands start with "!" which I believe is why the original author has the line BOT_PREFIX=!
