Creating a restriction for bots to fight spam
There are people on Twitch, who have a program that allows bot spamming in chats. They buy accounts somewhere in the form of login:oauth:token and connect them to their program.
They used to spam ads to promote themselves, now they do that to create conflicts between streamers or just to mess with streamers.
It is possible to get an Oauth:token through the Twitch API request, using apps verified by Twitch.
If I understood correctly from the developer's words, Twitch can get info about a token that sent the message.
My way of dealing with people that spam is (или я бы сказала What do I suggest to deal with the problem is) to add a form to a channel settings in order to put there the names of users (bots), which can send messages in chat using oauth:token got by a 3rd party app.
I think it'll be the most effective way to deal with spammers because in most cases the accounts used for spamming are stolen ones and users whose accounts were stolen wouldn't be happy to find out they were banned from some channels because someone was spamming from their accounts
had the same issue streaming today, got like 270 followers within 5 seconds after i got followed by a friend
I think another thing could help honestly, is a feature which doesnt permite bots from following channels, i saw many vtubers in those days getting attacked by Bots with 100k followers in a attack, so we honestly need something which stop from the bottom.
1100 follow on my account with 250 follow what should I do @twitch
A friend of mine also got follow botted, and there nowhere a thing where you can submit that this happened or contact support because you get send to this page.
Same thing today for me. Anyway for them to get off your account? I hate it
i was play stream gameplay and i had 2 viewers and another viewer posted about buyer viewers off website so i banned them for spamming my chat with loads of it then later that day i stream again and i got 4200 fake bot followers and now i cant get rid of these fake accounts
Let’s get high and reach goals
Same here today I was just chilling with 2-5 viewers and all of a sudden I reach 996 followers out of nowhere. It's annoying to think that these new followers are just bots and not real people. Asissancnce on this would be amazing.
I was streaming today and i'm a very small streamer that gets 5 views every once in a while and i was at 50 followers then randomly out of nowhere 520 bots followed my channel and at first i thought someone raided me but i saw my alerts and i did not see any raid/host alerts and no one was chatting other than my friend in chat so i realized that someone or a bot gave me a 520 followers and it really makes me mad that i got this and i dont know what i can do to get rid of these bot accounts off my channel now i really want twitch to fix this bot problem
