The two index fingers together emoji, which started on TikTok, has now been turned into a meme and is taking over Twitter.
TikTok has become the new go-to hub for trends, challenges and dance crazes and it's also introduced a number of new phrases that are now spreading to Twitter and Instagram.

'CEO' is basically a new way of saying 'Queen of being iconic' or 'Queen of having a sword' (as one would usually describe Carly Rae Jepsen, for example.)

What does 👉👈 mean on TikTok?
So, what do the two finger emojis pointing at each other actually mean? The emoji phrase has now made it over to Twitter where everyone is just as confused.
The majority of people agree that it means 'shy'. As if you were twiddling your fingers together, nervously. The emojis can often be paired with the 🥺emoji too, for extra nervous vibes.
The emoji sequence can be used if you're about to ask someone a soft, yet risky question, or if you're just feeling hella shy.

Other explanations claim that the emojis mean you're horny, and Urban Dictionary – which can be edited by anyone, FYI – also says that the emojis can be used to mean "gay sex". So there's also that.
