@monorail "πŸ‘€" is what we use around work to indicate someone's looking at a code review or pull request, so, work just got way more fun 😁

@monorail omg it is true I will never be able to post that on the work slack again

@monorail B..but I'm a furry who uses it a lot but not owo? D:

@monorail (also i just realized i replied to this on my old account with a similar thing, oh well)

@monorail I use πŸ‘€ to indicate something I hope a tagged person would enjoy seeing. I’m still not sure what owo or uwu mean.

@Shufei @monorail They're right-side up animal faces with eyes wide open and closed, respectively

@it_wasnt_arson What do they express? Does it mean β€œlook at me”? β€œI’m looking at you”? @monorail

@Shufei @monorail OwO is definitely "I'm looking at you" and uwu is... avoiding eye contact, being pointedly non-threatening, I guess

@it_wasnt_arson Thanks for explaining. If the β€œw” is a fangs, does this indicate aggression? If uwu means non threatening, how come fangs? @monorail

@Shufei @monorail The w is a mouth with the like... indent in the middle leading up to the nose, like in :3

@it_wasnt_arson Ohhhhhhh....
I thought it was teeth bared as warning. Not like a teddy bear muzzle just neutrally looming. Thanks, now I think I can read it a bit better.
