A very positive general exclamation. Derived from the tilde (~) character on a computer keyboard. In Internet culture, the appearance of tildes have come to connote strong reactions of happiness or approval. It stems from young computer users in highly excited states having a tendency to miss the exclamation point (!) key while typing, resulting in tildes becoming mixed with exclamation points in their writings.
"What's for supper, Mom?"
"Sloppy joes, Billy...and apple pie for dessert."
"Ohmigawd, La Parka tilde tilde just ran in on the Triple H/Scott Steiner match! Tilde!"
