Twitch adds new account verification options to help crack down on hate raids

As part of its effort to crack down on “hate raids” and other abusive behavior, Twitch has confirmed that it is adding a new “phone-verified chat” option that will give streamers more control over who can participate in their channels. The existing email verification system has also been expanded to be more “granular.”

The new verification requirements can be set by channel owners and moderators on all accounts, first-time chatters, accounts under certain ages (1 hour, 1 day, 2 days, 3 days, 1 week, 2 weeks, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months), or accounts that have been following for insufficient time. Exemption options are also available for VIPs, subscribers, and moderators.
