All of this should be implemented.
Additionally, control over who can follow, raid or host needs to be made granular as well. With as many options as possible. I'm talking account age, whether or not they stream, how recently they've streamed, and these should have their own whitelists. For instance, I might whitelist everyone who's been following me for a month already, but I wouldn't whitelist all of them to host me.
Similarly, it would be great if we didn't need to use outside tools to do what twitch could do internally just as well. I could whitelist creators, for instance, and automatically anyone they banned would be banned on my channel. A simple tool to help keep communities safer with creators we trust.
The regex feature is a good idea, and it should be implemented to give users as much control as possible. But, they could have a very simple slider that prevents interactions within a certain timeframe (also modular) from any accounts with too many similar characters. They aren't clever. Today I had a guy go from 1 to 4 before switching anything up and adding anything else to it. This wouldn't be perfect, and it would only serve to force them to be more clever, but at the very least it would prevent troll1 to troll23 from following you after you ban troll. Anything that makes their job harder.
Lastly, they need to get in contact with people in our communities already running large shared global ban lists so that they can implement controls to prevent those accounts from cropping up at all.
