Adin Ross is an American Twitch streamer, YouTuber and general internet personality associated with others like iShowSpeed and Kai Cenat. He grew a large following going into 2022 streaming video games like Grand Theft Auto and NBA 2K, which achieved his mainstream appeal, attracting many rappers like Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty and Lil Tecca, among others. He also gained traction after interviewing Andrew Tate on stream. The slang term Unspoken Rizz also became associated with him as his content trended across social media platforms like TikTok, Twitter and Instagram. In November 2022, Adin Ross was swatted live on stream, which inspired viral reactions and discourse. In February 2023, Ross announced he would leave Twitch to stream on Kick due to his perception of Twitch's censorship.
Adin Ross was born on October 11th, 2000, in Boca Raton, Florida. However, didn't grow up in Florida. He moved to New York and then later to California where he attended Woodlake Union High School in Woodlake, California.

Adin Ross posted his first tweet on September 2nd, 2016, writing, "Oh I've had so many days of crying… Oh I've had so many days of pain," and receiving 26 likes over six years (shown below, left).

His Twitch account was first added to the Internet Archive on June 20th, 2019.

Due to Bronny Jr.'s influence and his own habit of Twitch streaming NBA 2K21 via wager-style content, Ross gained a large following going into 2021, earning more collaborations with internet celebrities of increasing importance. For instance, on October 25th, 2020, Ross posted a collab stream with FlightReacts to YouTube, earning roughly 82,100 views in two years (shown below).

On February 13th, 2023, the Adin Live YouTube channel uploaded a clip from a February 12th Twitch stream where he talks about how he's going to leave Twitch for the streaming website Kick (shown below).
