Please let us delete Followers!
Please let us delete Followers. I had some trolls in my channel, creating stupid usernames including my channelname.
I reported them over a week now and twitch is doing nothing. This accounts still exist....
I dont want them in my follower list! I dont want them to get a mail, when i go live to remember them "Hej, he is online again, lets get there and troll him again"!
If someone is trolling, following and gets a mail everytime, when the streamer is going live, he can start over and over to create troll accounts.
So: PLEASE! Let use remove Followers! THANKS!
Please, put a system with the option for ban troll person.
2night, I ban 2 person who come back and make many account for troll my live and fake my followers goal! It's not accetable! It's insane!
I'm totaly bored and the situation is more inacceptable when you are a girl on the stream...

hi everyone I have had problems with trolls myself .
When I started streaming I did so with no intention of upsetting anyone or being harassed.
Trolls have been calling me on my mobile and threatening me and also texting me.
The police are involved.
Why doesn't twitch ban an account from all channels on twitch not just the one that the troll has been into.
Then you have a platform wide ban that takes effect immediately and it sends a clear message out that it is taken seriously.
I am have followers that are actually trolls! Please take this seriously as this is a type of cyber bullying that is really getting out of control.
Trolls as followers is a problem that I and many other streamers struggle with. It is a problem for many reasons. Seeing as this post is over a year and a half old, I have made a new suggestion with a bit more detail and several suggestions about how the problem could be fixed. If you are still interested in helping us achieve this goal please go see the new suggestion here: https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/297558-general/suggestions/35977906-allow-streamers-to-remove-followers-eg-banned-ch

It is really annoying and must be the default functionality anyway. Please implement this feature.

It's disgusting and ridiculous that the 'engineers' and designers didn't foresee this basic requirement.

@Helper1337 I think you did not get the point!
With a clean account the viewer get notified that you go live. So he creates a second trolling account with a name what you will not like and here we go. He just follows your stream and everybody see this in chat or in stream (in case you enabled). Or even can write into the chat something. You ban this troll user, but 2 mins later he creates a new account with a different harassment user name, and you can't stop this!
I would like not to turn off the follower notifications and such, because then most very kind and nice viewers would not get rewarded like the way I use.
My problem is with this, you will actually never know the relations between the clean account and the troll accounts. So it will never help to delete somebody. He can create any account, follow you and do no harassment with it. Means this is a clean, no trolling account where the troll itself is a nice person.
My new suggestion in this topic: https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/297558-general/suggestions/18839650-be-able-to-accept-deny-or-ban-followers-in-time-t
how about perma banning them from the chat? this should work much better as deleting them from the followers-list
