What if it’s on Instagram..then what does it mean??
In maths it means ‘about the same as’
It means “about” or “around” or “more or less” or “approximately”. It’s a mathematical symbol, as other have noted, but can be used as a shorthand in text. Examples:
“We’ll pick you up ~10pm.” = We’ll pick you up at approximately 10:00 pm.
“It’s gonna cost ~$5.” = It’s going to cost around five dollars.
Its the symbol for sarcasm if used in text, otherwise its “about” in math
