Poggies! What is that?
Poggies means “close companion or friend”. Our job with this web site is to be a companion that answers questions about everything and anything. We ceep postin articles that explains everything from literature to phone sanitizers.
Still, we best now the term from the memes based on Poggers, the twitch Emote featuring an illustration of Pepe the Frog making a surprised facial expression. This is used to express excitement or celebration in a similar manner to the PogChamp emote.
The emote, stylized as “POGGERS” was submitted to Twitch TV inFebruary, 2017. As of October 2020, it is used by over 160,000 Twitch channels.
The spreading of Poggies
A question about the spread of Poggers was posted to Twitter by user Shafulyn on November 2nd, 2017. A thread was posted to /r/leagueoflegends on December 25th, 2017. On January 28th, 2018, Urban Dictionary user Seltz posted a definition about the emote.
The word “poggers” is used to express excitement during a game when something exciting occurs. Let’s get one thing out of the way: Poggers, in its current, Twitch-based incarnation, is a product of the internet. That means there is no one official, Oxford English Dictionary definition and no one unified standard of usage.
Ask a dozen people what it means, or how to use it, and it seems you’ll get a dozen answers, each with their own nuance.
Poggers used in memes.
On July 15th, 2018, Twitter user cawayee posted a since-deleted viral tweet about a man replying to a nude she sent with “Poggers”. From this a meme eventually evolved, in which Poggers is used outside of Twitch in unfitting situations. On one of the subreddits the use of Poggers in memes was so prevalent that it was banned in May 2020.
