Affiliates should be Verified Accounts for Phone Verified Chat
The FAQ suggests alternatives to mobile verification, VOIP, et al., are not good enough for verification; i.e., too cheap to spoof.
I'm an affiliate in long standing, can that fact not be verification that I can be trusted not to make duplicate accounts? Twitch has my tax ID, I'm pretty sure that they're pretty sure who I am. I do use Authy (and other online services) for verification, but I do not use cell networks ("mobile").
It makes little sense that Twitch has approved Us affiliates to represent their Terms of Service well enough to pay us, yet I'm not trusted enough to speak in Phone Verified Chat channels.
