    Hi, I know that this is a very late response, but we’re hoping to find time to address this issue later this year. There are a few steps we’ll have to take to solve this problem in a way that will work for all streamers, but we understand the severity of the issue.

    It's getting out of hand with new bots showing up every week, Twitch seriously needs to do something about this. I'm going to make a protest bot that will connect to Twitch via vpn connections and spam Twitch admin channels/pm's until they do something about it. I would urge everyone to do the same sort of thing, keep messaging/emailing them about the issue until they listen.

    Some of these bots are being used maliciously recording your chat data for marketing purposes and selling it to 3rd parties.

    Twitch needs to add an option to disallow bots from joining your channel without permission and make it a bannable offence for users to join a channel with unwanted botting intentions. Or have the ban command prevent a user from viewing the chat/stream entirely and add an option to only allow registered/verified users to view your chat/stream - this would also reduce harassment.
