How are tiered subs factored into subscriber count?

When querying the subscriber count from a given channel, the count that returns is a single number, but I’m wondering if it counts based on sub count or sub points. Does a tier 2 sub add 2 and does a tier 3 sub add 6 like the sub points they are worth, or are they all added as 1 to that final number?

Is there a way that I’m missing to get the different kinds of sub counts?

Thanks!

I believe it’s based on sub points, but I’m not sure. The value we read is the value Twitch provides as _total on their API: https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/channels#get-channel-subscribers
