    The twitch community is becoming extremely concerned by the recent rise in bot accounts. I have FOUR suggestions:

    - Allow streamers to hide their follow button [to prevent follows] when they think a bot/ hate raid is incoming.

    - Enable streamers to be able to sort their followers by account creation dates and be able to mass delete from this function.

    - Enable streamers to mass report bot accounts after raids. A lot of people are afraid to report because of the word spread that they can take IP addresses this way.

    - ONLY allow THREE twitch accounts per email. Twitch is failing its community by allowing unlimited accounts per email address.

    Today I banned this many hoss accounts:

    friizzle_ banned hoss00312_try_again. Reason: bot.
    friizzle_ banned hoss00312_not_fake. Reason: bot.

    Some of these names are extremely concerning [against twitch guidelines], and if Twitch genuinely believes in creating a safe platform they need to target the rise in these attacks, and what might be coming after the bot follows.
