    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.
