Ability to restrict brand new accounts from chatting for a set period of time
Please create the option for an account age chat restriction (similar to follower only mode) so streamers can restrict newly created accounts from trolling/harassing in chat.
When necessary, brand new Twitch accounts could be restricted from chatting by allowing the streamer to pick the length of time accounts need to have been created for before they can chat. (24 hrs, 7 days, 14 days etc).
This would potentially be even more effective at dealing with certain types of harassment compared to a 10 min+ follower only mode because it would allow for the average twitch viewer to still interact with a stream that they perhaps don't follow while still protecting the streamer from someone making new accounts for harassment purposes.
Of the accounts that have come in and caused problems, 9/10 or more were created within the last 14 days. This would go a long way to actually preventing abuse.
Great idea. Should have already been a thing. Also, can we do something where if you unfollow and refollow within 5 mins it does not erase your entire followage? I accidently hit the unfollow button from time to time and lose my followage which really sucks.
This is VERY important and i believe its one step closer to get rid of viewbotting!
Thank you for this suggestion.
Add the ability to block follows the same way. Currently modding a channel that is suffering from an inundation of bot follows.
This is a fantastic idea, and would really limit trolls/bots ability to harass streamers and chats.
This is honestly such a amazing idea!
I really like this idea! Anything to prevent potential toxicity is great
As a victim of trolls making 1000s of accounts to force my chat into follower only mode, I would love a feature like this. Great idea!
