Is there a protection from spam on Follow alerts?

I recently started using follow alerts, but noticed some followers do not get a notification when they follow my stream. I was wondering if this was because their accounts are new on twitch, because most of the followers that didn’t get the follower notification triggered on my stream had low followings and views on their channel leading me to believe they were new accounts.

Notifications take 30-60 seconds to appear after a person follows. In addition, people who follow multiple times (unfollow and refollow) will not re-appear.

So to confirm their is no such thing as spam protection to new accounts causing it to skip the notification?

So if that is true what is causing the notification not to trigger on some people?

We do not do anything to cause notifications to be skipped apart from preventing duplicate alerts for the same user.
