Why Would I Want to Delete a Follower's Twitch Clips?

Sometimes, a clip can cause a potential copyright strike against your streaming name which can be a problem if you're a regular streamer. 

Also, some users can abuse the clip feature to attempt to bully you or harass you so you may wish to limit the ability to make clips.
