Pog Emote Meaning

I am so excited, and I just can’t hide it…(but, from a close-up!) is what you are saying with our little Pog emote!

 I know you google searched this at least once – what does pog mean twitch?

Twitch pog meaning revolves around the meaning of its predecessor – PogChamp emote.

So, pog twitch emote is used to express more or less the same thing as the PogChamp, and that is the immense excitement you feel when something cool happens (i.e. passing on to the next level more complicated than the previous one). 

It’s just that in the case with pog twitch emote you have the close-up on the mouth/lips as the most prominent part of the body when you’re expressing your excitement over something.

On the other hand, pog twitch can also be used to express your shock over something that’s just happened in the game.

The Story Behind

Twitch pog came to be when someone decided to make a close-up on a genuine excitement facial expression of Ryan “Gootecks” Gutierrez.

Our Gootecks here was pretty excited to see a cameraman tipping over his tripod. 

It is safe to say that pog bttv is easily found emote that you can use to show the state of shock and excitement/amusement.

Also, bttv pog is one of the oldest emotes you’ll find out there and it originated somewhere after 2012.

So, use the twitch pog and show excitement whenever you see fit!
