It’s a sideways heart

It’s certainly not unique to Twitter and was not created on it. It’s been around for a while. But, yeah, it’s a heart and it usually means “love”.

<3 <3 <3 XOXOXO

“It means you’re less than three because you’re my number 1.”

It means three of you are greater than I.

And this: </3 means “heartbroken”.

I always thought it looked like butt-cheeks while wearing a hospital gown.


see it now?

^ Well, there’s also the whole issue of the number “39” looking like certain sexual acts…

Every time you type </3, an emo is born.

/edit Oh s**t.

@DominicX That would be 69. Which I didn’t think about when I got my tattoo of my astrological sign

But 39 is something else. Look at it for a while. You’ll see it. :)

I always thought it looked like a little penis and balls.

@DominicX: HAHAHAHA! Awesome! And there is no end to the fun there. ;)

@KatawaGrey no, that would be 8==D
—-or 8======D, depending on who you’re dating—

The symbol that always amused me was :P
People use it as sticking tongue out, but I always saw it as oral sex.

@filmfann I like your style. ;-)

holden's avatar

@filmfann I fail to see what you’re talking about.
This is a man with buck teeth! :B

3 is greater than “does”.

KatawaGrey's avatar

@holden: That’s why I said little. :-P Also, may I take the opportunity to brag? It would be 8==========D. :)

holden's avatar

@KatawaGrey I hope you’re not trying to impress me.

filmfann's avatar

@KatawaGrey That looks like about an inch and a half on my screen. Really?

KatawaGrey's avatar

@holden: Hey, you’re not the one looking at it. :)

@filmfann: :-P

@filmfann it’s less than an inch on mine!

Beta_Orionis's avatar

Yes, it is the heart emoticon. Here’s a tiny post about its use and variants.

Was wondering about this but was afraid to ask.

proXXi's avatar

It means that whatever is to the symbols left is lesser than 3 ; )
