Last thoughts

If someone is spamming on your channel or is sending you unwanted messages, we highly recommend you block that person. 

If the person is harassing you, we still recommend you block that person on Twitch. But afterward, if you think that person has crossed a line, it is for the best to report that person, and if the twitch support team agrees with you, that user will get banned and won’t harass anyone else on their platform. But you should always block them first because it could take several days till their support team sees your message and evaluates it!
