Are you seeing MonkaHmm being spammed on Twitch everywhere and don’t know what it means? We’ve all been there… This article will tell you everything you need to know about the MonkaHmm Twitch emote!
What does MonkaHmm mean on Twitch?
MonkaHmm is a variant of the super-popular MonkaS emote. While MonkaS is used in moments of distress, MonkaHmm is used for those ‘thinking’ moments.
But recently, MonkaHmm has also been widely used when someone is acting suspiciously. For example, if someone is being SUS during Among Us, the Twitch chat will spam the MonkaHmm emote.
Origin of MonkaHmm Twitch
MonkaHmm was first uploaded to BTTV in 2018 by user SarcasmDetected, just 2 years after the MonkaS emote was uploaded to BTTV and FrankerFacez which became incredibly popular in 2017 and is still one of the most used emotes on Twitch today.
MonkaS was originally uploaded by MonkaSenpai in 2016 and it took off in 2017 when Twitch streamer Forsen’s chat made it popular. After that, with the popularity of MonkaS continuing to increase, it didn’t take long before the Twitch community created variations of this emote such as the MonkaHmm.
Here’s a list of other popular Monka emotes on Twitch:
How to get MonkaHmm emote on Twitch
If you want to get MonkaHmm on Twitch, you will have to install the Better Twitch TV browser extension. We have a separate article dedicated to the installation of BTTV. Here’s the TL;DR:
- Go to BetterTTV.com select your browser and download the browser extension, you can then see the emotes on supported Twitch channels.
- To configure your BTTV options, head on over to the chat of any Twitch streamer (they don’t have to be live) and hit chat settings, where you can personalize your BTTV settings.
If you wish to add the MonkaHmm and other emotes to your OWN Twitch channel, you can do so by signing in to BTTV using your Twitch credentials and authorizing your Twitch account. Next, you can head over to the emote list and add MonkaGIGA to your Twitch channel.
Afterward, your viewers will then be able to use the MonkaHmm emote on your Twitch channel and they will see it if they have BTTV installed as a browser extension (which the majority does already anyway).
When to use MonkaHmm on Twitch
If a streamer is in deep thoughts and needs to make a decision, the chat will start spamming MonkaHmms.
Alternatively, if someone is acting SUS in Among Us (when they are likely to be the imposter) you could spam the MonkaHmm emote in the Twitch chat to convey your suspicions.
Origin of Pepe the frog Meme
Pepe The Frog is an anthropomorphic frog illustrated by artist Matt Furie that first appeared in a 2005 comic ‘Boy’s club’. Pepe became an internet meme after Matt Furie posted the cartoon on his Myspace blog, it quickly went viral and got reposted to 4chan in 2008. By 2015 it was one of the most popular internet memes and many variations of the frog started popping up online.
By 2010, Pepe the Frog had become a symbol within alt-right and white-supremacist movements. Since then, Matt Furie has sued many such extremist organizations for attempting to profit from his illustration.
Matt did welcome the use of Pepe the frog during the Hong Kong protests.
The use of Pepe the frog and monka emotes on Twitch is completely unrelated to alt-right movements.
