Social Media Examples

Here's how this text will look on popular social media channels:

Twitter Strikethrough Text

Example of strikethrough text on Twitter

Instagram Strikethrough Text

Discord Strikethrough Text

Don't use this tool for Discord. Instead, type tilde characters before and after your strikethrough text, ~~like this~~.

Sorta works on Discord. You should use their ~~ wrapper command instead.

Slack Strikethrough Text

This tool works fine on Slack, but, you can also use their ~strike this~ command wrapped around the text to do an HTML strikethrough instead.

Works fine, but, use the strikethrough button or ~strike this~ command instead.

Google Docs Strikethrough Text

Google Docs is another HTML text editor, so, you're better off using proper HTML strikethrough on there.

Understanding Unicode and Text Formatting

Unicode is a computing industry standard designed to consistently represent and manipulate text expressed in most of the world's writing systems. One of the fascinating features of Unicode is the ability to use "combining characters." These are characters that don't stand alone but modify the character before them, allowing for a wide range of visual effects.

For our strikethrough text generator, we utilize several Unicode combining characters to achieve different text formatting effects. Here's a breakdown:

  1. Strike-through:
    • Unicode: \u0336
    • Example: S̶t̶r̶i̶k̶e̶-̶t̶h̶r̶o̶u̶g̶h̶
    • How it works: The combining character \u0336 adds a horizontal line through each character.
  2. Slash Symbol:
    • Unicode: \u0337
    • Example: s̷l̷a̷s̷h̷ ̷s̷y̷m̷b̷o̷l̷
    • How it works: The combining character \u0337 adds a diagonal slash through each character.
  3. Underline:
    • Unicode: \u0332
    • Example: U͟n͟d͟e͟r͟l͟i͟n͟e͟
    • How it works: The combining character \u0332 underlines each character.
  4. Double Underline:
    • Unicode: \u0333
    • Example: d͇o͇u͇b͇l͇e͇ ͇u͇n͇d͇e͇r͇l͇i͇n͇e͇
    • How it works: The combining character \u0333 adds two lines below each character.
  5. Dotted Line:
    • Unicode: \u0323
    • Example: d̤o̤t̤t̤e̤d̤ ̤l̤i̤n̤e̤
    • How it works: The combining character \u0323 places dots below each character.
  6. Wave Line:
    • Unicode: \u0330
    • Example: w̰a̰v̰ḛ ̰l̰ḭn̰ḛ
    • How it works: The combining character \u0330 adds a wavy line below each character.
