This application runs on a loop. After each iteration, the application pauses itself for five minutes.
The loop is pretty basic:

1: Retrieve the names of the people being followed.

2: Check which of those names are streaming.

3: Compare those names that are streaming with the last check.

3.5: If someone else started streaming since the last check - notify the user.

4: Pause then repeat.

The actual iteration takes about five seconds, but the application pauses for five minutes after each check.

I created this tool because I like watching TwitchTV streams, but I found that I would miss when people would stream because I was not constantly checking to see who was. The idea I had when I was creating this was to make something that does the job using as little attention, space, and processing power as possible.
