The gaming community has so much slang, understanding them is like learning a new language entirely. They just keep coming with new ones.

When the Twitch users are gaming, they try to save time in typing or talking by using slangs and abbreviations for faster communication. So a lot of the common sayings are abbreviated or shortened.

What is the meaning of 07 on Twitch?

07 is mostly used to denote salute. It is used on all platforms by teenagers – Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Twitch, and WhatsApp. 07 is used to say salute in quick chat because it shows the emoji of saluting. 0 is the head and 7 is the hand position.

When would someone use 07?

People use 07 when someone from their enemy team helps them either intentionally or by accident. People also use it when a player does something respectable. It is equivalent to saying “F”, which means respect. But gamers use “F” to pay their respects to the team members who have died in the game.

Some users also use it as a greeting when they enter or depart. So that’s their version of ‘hi’.

Meaning of other commonly used slangs

If you are new to Twitch, there are some slangs you should be aware of to understand the chat.

  • Dono – It is a shorthand term used to ask for donations.
  • Afk – Away from the keyboard. It is used to say that the player has gone offline. If you are playing a game and you need to go for a few minutes, you can say “I will be afk for a few minutes”. This will give your team member a heads up that you won’t be able to help them for some time and they will have to take care of you until you come back.
  • Irl – In real life. When you want to signify that you are talking about something not related to the game but something in your life, you start with saying “girl”.
  • Kappa/Kapp – Just kidding. To show that you aren’t being serious so that people know not to take offence.
  • Mald – it means that the person is so angry they are pulling at their hair and going bald. Basically, it is the combination of the words ‘mad’ and ‘bald’. It is used for exaggeration of the anger someone is feeling.
  • Pog – People use this to show amazement or to say that something great has happened in the game. If it is the latter then it is shorthand for Play Of the Game.
