Twitch Streamer Claims That Kik Forcibly Changed Her Name To Give a Larger Streamer


A Twitch streamer named Sunlihyt claims that Kick forced her to change her name on the platform because it was “reserved” for someone else, despite the fact that it was actively used.

Since the launch of the Twitch Trainwreck streamer at the end of 2022, the popularity of the Kick broadcasting platform has increased dramatically.

However, it was not without problems, because at the first launch it had problems with sexual content in various streams.

Twitch streamer Sunlihyt tweeted that Kik forced her to change her name because it was “reserved” for another user, despite the fact that she stated this name just a few minutes after the launch of the platform.

Twitch Streamer Claims That Kik Forced Her to Change Her Name

On March 21, a Twitch streamer tweeted that Kick had taken her username to “give it to a Twitch partner.”

“Kik took my active username to pass it to a twitch partner, mmm, yeah, I’m not aware of this switch, lol,” she said.

The streamer, whose real name is Alyssa, also shared a screenshot of the letter she received from Kick.

“Thank you for contacting us. The username “Lyss” was reserved for another user and returned to him upon his request,” the message says.

“As an apology for the inconvenience, we could help you change your username to a variant of the one you had if you want to do that.”

Alyssa responded with applause in a tweet mentioning that she had been using it for two months before Kik forced her to change her name.

However, other Kick users have responded to her tweets, claiming to have seen this happen to other creators in the past.

At the time of writing, Kick had not yet responded to her tweets, and Alyssa no longer exchanged messages with the platform.

We’ll have to wait to see if Alyssa returns her username, but in the meantime, you can go to our entertainment section to find out more news.
