Twitch co-founder and COO Kevin Lin is leaving the company after 13 years with the brand, according to an official Medium post issued Lin on Thursday.

Lin stated that he is leaving to pursue his “next adventure” in the technology space.

“I’ve spent nearly a third of my life bleeding purple — even before we were purple — and I am so proud of everything we’ve achieved in these twelve and a half years. After many months of contemplation, I’ve decided it’s time to journey into my next adventure. My life has been forever changed for the better by Twitch; it has been a source of hope, optimism, reflection, support, energy, sharing, friendship, and belonging. I will always be part of the Twitch community, and Twitch will always be part of me.”

Lin went on to say; “Twitch is the living magic in my life. Twitch reminds me to care for my community near and far, and I hope that it does the same for you. No matter what’s going on in your life, Twitch will remind you that you can change the world as long as you have a community that you believe in and that believes in you. Together, we are powerful. Twitch is our Link, our Crono, our Master Chief, our Tassadar. Together, we can stand up just as we can tear down. Let’s put our effort into making things a little better every day. Let’s build a higher baseline of decency, respect, and a more welcoming community. We’ve done this before; we can do it again.”
