The letters ‘kik’ is simply ‘lol’ being mistyped. If you observe your keyboard you will find ‘lol’ right beside ‘kik’ and can easily be hit instead. The meaning behind ‘lol’ is ‘Laugh Out Loud’ yet at times many will say it in a rush if they are busy resulting ‘kik’.
On a very rare instance ‘kik’ can refer to a smartphone app that allows a user to be anonymous, because the app is only tied to a user name and no personal information.

Here you experience a friend that is very chatty and another simply trying to work and unable to type correctly.
Early in the day:
- Texter 1: Hey babe my hair is a mess I’m not going out. BAD HAIR DAY.
- Texter 2: kik
- Texter 1: ???
- Texter 1: What does that mean?
Later that Day:

Now we have a conversation where a girl messaged her boyfriend early in the day and he responded with ‘kik’ and then doesn’t respond the rest of the day confusing her with to what it means. After he finally messaged back and figured out what she was talking about he irritates her by sending what he had meant to send earlier.
