πŸ‘‰πŸ‘ˆ Two Fingers Touching are two index finger emojis pointing towards one another which typically signify shyness or hesitation when asking a question. Although the set of emojis have been used since they were available for iPhone in 2011, the action of performing the finger touch or adding it to text in memes became popular in March 2020 on Twitter and TikTok. The emoji combination has often been used together with the Pleading Emoji.


On June 9th, 2011, the first known use of the
emoji combination to convey a timidness was used in a tweet[1] by @xxUMNMxx, in which the user admitted that they never touch their face (shown below).

The emoji combination started gaining popularity in February 2020 on Twitter. The viral point was achieved when on February 26th, 2020, artist Lil Nas X combined the two fingers touching emoji with the Pleading Face Emoji in a tweet[5] that gained over 32,000 retweets and 330,000 likes in two years (shown below, left). The tweet assisted the popularization of both Two Fingers Touching combination and Pleading Face Emoji on Twitter in the following months.

Pleading Emoji

Pleading Emoji (πŸ₯Ί), also known as Begging Emoji and Simp Emoji, refers to an emoji with furrowed eyebrows and "puppy dog" eyes looking slightly upward as if begging or pleading. Added to Unicode in June 2018, the emoji has since achieved significant popularity on social media, where it was laden with a variety of meanings ranging from expressing shyness and being sorry to conveying more nuanced meanings such as simping. The emoji has also been referred to as Bottom Emoji due to its perceived popularity with people who take on a passive role during intercourse. The emoji has often been used together with the Two Fingers Touching πŸ‘‰πŸ‘ˆ emoji combination.
