So what does the Twitch LUL emote mean? If you're a fan of streams, you've probably seen this emote quite a few times.

It is used as a synonym for the terms LOL, LMAO or ROFL and is often used to react to a funny situation during a stream.


But where does this emote come from?

The origin of the LUL emote dates back to June 2013 when a photo of John "TotalBiscuit" Bain was uploaded to the Flickr social network by itsjustatank.

The photo was taken during Major League Gaming Anaheim 2013 and TotalBiscuit was the famous video game reviewer and commentator that everyone knew.

In 2014, TotalBiscuit added their emote for their followers on their Twitch channel and the photo became one of the most used emotes on Twitch. Sadly, in May 2018, TotalBiscuit passed away, and Twitch users honored his memory using the LUL emote.
