Twitch.tv - the most popular streaming video games platform - has been continuously making this platform as interesting as possible. Whereas the main motto of this platform is to let gamers broadcast their games to other people who love to watch live streaming of video games, this platform has a chat window enabled as well. Using that chat window, players and watchers can communicate with emoticons - the best and the fast method of sharing emotions by making a variety of faces, smileys, etc. Kappa is one such emoticons of twitch.tv platform, which has a story attached with it.

The name Kappa, is in fact dedicated to the former employee of justin.tv (twitch.tv was a part of justin.tv until 2011). Name of that employee was Josh Kappa. After he left justin.tv, an emote was developed and named Kappa. Since then Kappa emoticon is being used in twitch.tv to express trolling smile. It is also used to convey sarcasm, simple mischief, etc. However, it is mainly used after trollish comments to convey a troll smile. It is mostly used when the player misses a chance in the game.

Nowadays, KappaHD is available as well. If you play games on twitch.tv, stream live games, and also participate in conversation with the player via the chat window, use Kappa emoticon to convey a troll smile at the end of the sentence you write. When you type Kappa into the Twitch.tv chat window, Kappa icon will appear. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.75.101.251 (talk) 04:39, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
