So last night I was streaming with some friends and experienced my first episode of harassment while streaming the game Dead by Daylight. Someone who claimed to have played a game with me earlier that night created an account with vulgar words in it while using my name in the username. They then began saying some pretty obscene things and it made me very uncomfortable. After reporting and blocking that person, they created a second account which was also blocked and then created a third account which was blocked as well. All three accounts were trying to solicit nudity and photos out of me for payment. I made a friend of mine moderator so that he can handle these things as soon as it comes up but I feel like maybe there should be something else done.
Perhaps maybe requiring an active phone number linked to your twitch account? That way no one can just keep creating new email addresses to create new Twitch accounts within minutes specifically to harass someone.
