Option for streamers to limit chat to accounts over a certain age
Harassment can be a problem for some streamers on twitch. A user will come into chat and cause trouble for the broadcaster / other chatters. He might get banned, but nothing is stopping him from creating a new account and re-enterring the chat to continue causing problems. Even if the chat requires a verified email, it is easy for a troll to return. If there was on option for streamers to prevent accounts under a certain age from chatting (say, 1 or 2 days), this would make it a lot harder for people to continue trolling after getting banned. Legitimate new accounts would be slightly affected by such a policy, but the benefits certainly outweigh the costs of such an option for the streamer.

Oh I Read It Now :D Yeah That Is A Good Idea
Neither of you read the info section. It's about account age, not the age of the person who made the account.
It's A Good Idea However I Do Have To Agree With Below Its Really Easy To Lie About Your Age

The problem with this idea, is how to prevent someone from lying about their age?
