My channel (timeishy) recently got follower botted, my channel was at 171 followers when I started streaming but when I ended my stream I was at 2.2k and it keeps increasing. Please help. I also do not want to get my twitch account deleted as I have spent months working on this community that I have.
Twitch has a help guide on Follow Bots https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/how-to-handle-view-follow-bots
Essentially, don’t worry about it. Twitch will ban the bots in one of their next ban waves, and if you didn’t instigate the follow bot then you have absolutely nothing to worry about and don’t need to take any action at all, and please don’t try to use any 3rd party tools to remove the bots as Twitch will take care of it in time and the bots pose no actual harm to your channel in any way.
