harassment through gifted sub names
Anonymous sub-gifts should be able to be seen by the Streamer so they can determine if a ban should be possible. A female streamer I watch is being harrassed through Anonymous gifted subs to Twitch names of a sexual nature as well as threatening names of physical harm. Let me be clear, this isn't in the TTS message, it's an actual Twitch account name being used to target and harass her. There needs to be a better way to report these people, ban their card use by Twitch, or prevent them from gifting by the streamer. This is a literal loophole for targeted harassment on your site. Perhaps an account name purge is in order by Twitch as well to help prevent this.
This is what I would want implemented.
Allow me to moderate the channels I follow that I would be happy to receive a anonymous gifted Sup, & block Sups from other followed channels that I just don't care that much for the Sub.
My reason is in some channels I follow I am really just there providing some friendly chat & a follow to give support. But I believe there are plenty of other chatters that would actually appreciate the Gifted Sub a lot more than myself, & would like to be able to block Gifted sups & let them go to someone who really wants it.
Please at least let streamers disable receiving anon gift subs, or at least give them moderation tools to allow which one should be sent to the channel.
I've been experiencing this issue as a creator. It would be great if I could just disable anonymous gift subs all together.
I'm wondering why creators on the platform are not protected by harassment from anonymous people gifting subs. A streamer I mod for is constantly harassed by someone on the Internet who is exploiting a way to gift subs with what I would consider against ToS.
With having this feature enabled you are opening all content creators open to abuse and NO ONE should feel that way. I know of some who have or are thinking of switching platform because of this.
I would recommend that Twitch disables this feature until a better way can be found to protect them. Or have something where content creators or their mods see it in i.e. auto queue and it can be whitelisted by them.
I look forward to your response.
