1,802 votesWe’re happy to announce that we have released an additional update to address these concerns. Streamers can now prevent their banned users from watching their livestreams. You can find and turn on this feature in the Moderation settings section of the Creator Dashboard, through the “Stop banned users from viewing stream” toggle.
Please note, this update 1). does not prevent users from watching livestreams from an incognito window or while logged out and 2). does not prevent users from viewing VODs, clips or highlights. We plan to explore extending the functionality of bans further, including but not limited to preventing VOD and clip playback.
In addition, we’ve made an update so that users that are blocked will now automatically be blocked from watching a streamer’s livestreams.
We will leave this thread open for your other points regarding preventing view of other content types and account creation.

The limited amount of accounts per email is actually an extremely good idea. Yes, people could continue to go make new emails to make new accounts with. But setting up a new email, then making a new account and verifying the new email would take much longer than using the one email to make infinite accounts. Since the process would be significantly harder, I would probably deter a lot of people from trolling.

I once had someone come back with upwards of 12 different accounts over the course of an hour. That's at least one new account every 5 minutes. It was disruptive and upsetting, to say the least. I have had countless other issues with banned users that I wont get in to. But needless to say, I support this whole heartedly.

Trolls as followers is a problem that I and many other streamers struggle with. It is a problem for many reasons. Seeing as this post is over a year and a half old, I have made a new suggestion with a bit more detail and several suggestions about how the problem could be fixed. If you are still interested in helping us achieve this goal please go see the new suggestion here: https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/297558-general/suggestions/35977906-allow-streamers-to-remove-followers-eg-banned-ch
