An option to disable SMS authentication fallback after enabling Authy.
SMS as 2FA is well known to be the least secure of the methods available but still a better option than no 2FA at all, but I suggest an option to disable it as a fallback after having enabled Authy to lessen the security risks to the user account. You could learn from others mistakes such as Reddit's: https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2018/08/password-breach-teaches-reddit-that-yes-phone-based-2fa-is-that-bad/87 votes
updates via notifications
My idea would need to be an option that streamers can turn on and off; basically when you get the notification on your phone that a streamer went live one of the options is 'Keep Me Updated on This Stream'. What this option would do is periodically send a text update (via notifications, text being the format not the means of communication) of what is going on in the stream. The streamer would likely need a moderator of sorts to actually fill out the data and then the service itself sends the update at an interval chosen by the streamer (that way it doesn't get too annoying and people know what they're signing up for). While this could be very simple to setup on phones I'm not sure how practical it would be for desktops/laptops.
The purpose of this idea is for those who are busy whether at work or school still want to be up-to-date on what their favorite streamer is doing, especially if streams often connect to previous ones. Another reason that personally applies to me is you could tell when a stream ends (that would be the final notification from the stream after hitting this option). I watch a few streamers in a different time zone and therefore have school sometimes during their stream times. If they stream for more than about 2 hrs though I usually have time to make it to the end of their stream. Instead of having to guess if its still going or not when I'm finally available to watch simply knowing 'I've been notified that it's finished' or 'no notification, it's still going!' would be very handy!

allow users to view old Twitch account names after a name change
If a broadcaster does not stream often or regularly, it can be tough to keep up with their channel. If they switch their Twitch username and you don't recognise it on your follower list, there should be a way to view their past user names to clarify who the streamer is. Quick and easy, Steam has a similar feature that has helped me not remove friends after a username switch.40 votes
Disable notifications for reruns
I still want to see when my friends’ channels go live but I don’t want notifications for reruns. I’d like a separate option to disable that.39 votes
Have the ability to remove CJK display names
Many people did it without thinking and while I agree they should have did some research before setting it to something stupid for it to look cool for like 3 seconds. I would just make a new account honestly if it didnt mean losing so many stuff gained over the years of streaming and chatting and watching people.3 votes

Unsubscribe from Prime Loot Notifications
Most advertisements you get in emails at least give you the option to unsubscribe. I know what games and I'm not interested in free loot or whatever. The world has too much click bait already.96 votes
Verify someone owns the email address they sign up with, before creating the account
I currently get regular spam from this site as people sign up using my email address, and I have to delete the accounts myself.
It would be better (and standard practice) to force the email verification to be a mandatory part of account creation.3 votes
Too easy to register new accounts on here when a user gets blocked
To easy to register fake emails on here and harass someone defiantly need to not make it easy to create multiple user accounts on here which ultimately will lead to malicious activities.86 votes

After username was changed show an url or redirect the users the new user channel
I renamed my user from kozakagamer to kozaka. Everything went fine, just the old https://www.twitch.tv/kozakagamer is not working now (Time machine missing :) ).
So, my idea is, that maybe it would be good, that in case rename an url should be show which points to the new page or the user should be redirected to the new. Maybe just for 60 days?
This way, if an viewer comes over fore example a stored url, and want to find me, he could easily find my channel without any guessing what the new name would be.
Allot of different websites offer this feature, but, how about making it so that if you somehow in someway can't login to your account after reporting missing credentials, it will offer you the chance to send the email about (e.g resetting your password) to an email that you can access.6 votes

Renewed Subscription Notification Reminder
Ever had a resub renew and forget to go to their channel to press that magical button on top of chat?
I have something to combat that. How about a small reminder within the notification center to display that your subscription has been renewed. It can also have variations such as the amount of months that your subscription has been active. Or also display the current tier of your subscription.
Here is an example of it in action: https://imgur.com/a/gsHjI
Such a small feature an impact the community as a whole.

Open standard 2FA with QR codes
Could we please move away from the Authy only 2FA implementation currently used and provide standard TOTP and QR codes?
This would work much better for people who already have a stack of 2FA accounts in other solutions, remove reliance on a single application, fix issues with support (eg. Windows Phone), remove the need for a phone number (important for younger users I'd imagine) and generally increase flexibility and usability of 2FA for everyone by not locking us into a proprietary implementation.279 votes
Add a place to see ignored users
This idea is already available via third-party websites but it'd be nice to have it implemented on the website because often times I will accidentally click ignore on someones name and not realize it.7 votes
old name forwards to new name.
After a user changes their name, the old name forwards to the new name until the old name has been recycled for reuse.
Reason: Some cases exist where it is not feasible to spend the time to change all old links to the new link such as in youtube descriptions.2 votes
