What does the 'viewers' number refer to in the viewers list?

Currently I am seeing one particular channel where the number reported here is x8 that reported as the viewer count by twitch, what could be the reasons for this?

e.g: the viewer list reports ~32k viewers / twitch is reporting ~4k viewers.

The viewer list number shows you the amount of names that can currently be seen (and that number adjusts as you filter). That number is essentially the amount of accounts connected to the chat. So they may not be viewing and showing up in the viewer list, but may be connected to the chat and chatting. Though the numbers you speak of are rather large, are you seeing this in many channels or one in particular?

Just one person in particular right now.

Thanks for the response though
