Twitch streamers may soon be able to share banlists with other channels

In the never-ending fight to make chat tolerable, Twitch is testing new safety tools that warn streamers and mods when a user has been banned in other channels. We caught a glimpse of the new vetting tool during a demo presentation of Guest Star, a new feature that lets users appear on streams as a video guest with the approval of the streamer.

As shared by Zach Bussey on Twitter (opens in new tab), before a user is approved to be a guest star, mods can see if they’ve been flagged by Twitch as a “suspicious user” or “serial harasser.” This apparently reflects information already surfaced by Twitch, but the “shared ban” tag appears to be new.

Twitch did not go into detail about it, but the tag suggests that it’ll be possible to share a list of your channel’s user bans with other streamers.
