  1. Well, I believe grammatically it means a continuation of a letter. Like if i said: yess~.

    But, with internet speak, I believe it's to add like an effect to the work, like if I said: that's ~~spooky~~ - I could be wrong, but that has been my impression. haha

  2. if put in front of a number, it means approximately...

    i.e. "approximately / roughly 4 hours" = "~ 4 hours"
