Adin Ross was naive or ecstatic when he was banned from Twitch for the seventh time in his career, but he took the opportunity to reflect and decided he wants to see if Kick, the platform Trainwreck created, might be a better fit for him and his content moving forward.
Ross spoke up on-stream on February 12, after accusing Twitch of attempting to silence him this week, saying that the program promised him that if he keeps "saying certain things" and "promoting certain things," the restriction might be permanent.
At this point, he won't "permanently" switch to Kick to stream it, but he wants to experience it for yourself.
The first official kick stream will be this week, and he intends to enjoy the 'lawless' nature of the alternate platform by watching live sports, movies, prank calls, and more. He even joked that he could watch adult content on there because the website has "no terms of service."
Despite what he said, Kick does have some guidelines. For example, streams and comments that are "harmful, deceptive, offensive, or illegal" are prohibited, as well as content that encourages such behaviors.
Hate speech against a person or group on the basis of "race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, medical or mental illness, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender, or gender identity" is also prohibited.
In fact, content that contains nudity, or is pornographic or depicting sexual activity, is also against the rules. The main difference, though, is that the platform strives to make the rules less ambiguous.
The clarity of Kick's guidelines might make the platform appear all-the-more enticing. Ross is not a popular platform, therefore, which is why he's putting his feet down.
