    For new users the impact is exactly the same as follower only mode. This is just a lot better than follower only mode at solving actual issues, and reducing damage to e.g. raids.

    The "established account" could include other criteria as well, e.g. jumping through a few hoops to ensure the user can be truly identified in a unique enough way that they can then be effectively banned when they make trouble.

    Unfortunately at this stage it seems clear that Twitch does not care about *solving* problems, they care about the *appearance of solving* the problems.

    They add tools that do not solve the problem, and ruin the normal use of their platform, such as how follower-only mode ruins raids, but after several years this suggestion has been consistently ignored.

    They're probably worried that new users will find it annoying that they can't instantly go and talk to some chats, but those actual new users will likely only go to the big channels and they're lost in the chat anyway so those channels would likely not care a whole lot about this feature. No point in worrying about such trolls there.

    But the vast majority of streams on Twitch are not huge, and there one person can already do significant damage, and that's where this kind of a tool would have the most benefit.

    Some ideas from elsewhere: "Established" could also require e.g. viewing X many hours of streams, following X many people, etc. .. something to show that the account is actually active and in use by a legit person
