Hey, it does give an error in your console. But the API does return something. You can check that by simply pasting the API url in your browser: {"error":"Unprocessable Entity","status":422,"message":"Channel 'brunofin' is not available on Twitch"}. And you can acces it in you succes function of your json call. You can for example use:
if(data.error){ alert(data.message); }

This is something you’ll have to workaround in your code. Because Twitch will always respond with a status of 422, you’ll have to have some code that deals with users who no longer have accounts.

Also, you need to switch the order of jQuery and Bootstrap in your JavaScript declarations. jQuery should come first as Bootstrap depends on it:
