You have a lot of different suggestions here, the latter of which have not been implemented so I will leave the topic open, but I wanted to let the thread know that we have recently released the ability to remove followers from your list by Blocking them.
You can see how to Block a user here: https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/how-to-manage-harassment-in-chat#BlockWhispersandMessagesfromStrangers
Additionally, you can see your channel Banned Chatters in your Moderation Preferences in the Dashboard

This. My account has been follow-botted non-stop for the last month, and it doesn't look like it's stopping. This has resulted in not being able to use follow alerts - the bots follow fast and hard when whoever is doing it takes manual control, and there also seems to be an automated process constantly driving them at my channel. I have Sery_bot activated now to remove them once they have followed, but they still trigger the alerts, and it isn't a pleasant experience for either me or the viewer. One issue with using a phone number is that the same number can be assigned to a different account. If something like Sery_bot could be introduced as a breaker before the request gets actioned by the account, that would be great. For example, at the moment it's - follow request, account accepts request, alert gets triggered, Sery-bot evaluates and removes the follow if deemed to be a followbot. This makes spam. If Twitch could integrate something like - follow request, Sery-bot evaluates and removes the follow if deemed to be a followbot, account accepts request that makes it through the Sery_boy filter, Alert gets triggered. No spam. I know Twitch doesn't make Sery_bot, but somebody could contact the creator for assistance (if needed) with making an automatic feature that performs this task. It might not be 100% protection, but it would be way better than the current level of no protection, and reduce spam. I spent hours removing over 2000 followers, and was only able to report 15 of the bots before further bot reports generated an "internal error" (I was quite willing to one-by-one submit a report for each bot). I suspect that my account is also being monitored for attack, and triggered, by the lurkers I get in my channel when I am offline also. Getting rid of these accounts permanently would be good too.
The problem with these reports is that you can only send 15-20 of them at a time. There I was, trying to report 300 bots every day, for a targeted attack that kicked off pretty much when I became affiliated. It would be good if we could report bots in bulk.
