How and When to Use the *️⃣ Keycap: * Emoji

  • If you’re referring to an offense, stating an offensive sentence or word, or even sharing a viral post/repost containing and surround offense, use *️⃣. For instance, “TW *️⃣: Contains offensive language”.
  • You may also use *️⃣ while typing out an abusive word (not sure what the point is, but if you’re up for censorship, this point is useful).
  • Speaking of censorship, *️⃣ the way to go. It doesn’t matter if you’re for or against it, you could use this emoji either way. For example, “Free the goddamn nipple! *️⃣”, “Censorship reflects a society’s lack of confidence in itself *️⃣” or “Fcuk you *️⃣ Did I place the asterisk right?”.
  • *️⃣ also acts as a mode of continuation. Like, “I want to tell you something, remind me *️⃣”. 12 days later. “Hey remember??? *️⃣”.
  • *️⃣ is just the emoji version of the keyboard asterisk (*). However, since emojis are such a prominent part of the social media lingo, this emoji would be the perfect replacement.
