SMOrc Twitch Emote Meaning

SMOrc Emote Origin

The SMOrc emote is based on an orc from the game Space Marines. While it is generally used as an insult against someone who is being rude, obnoxious, or mean, it can also be used as a “thread” to Twitch streamers. 

The premise is that the viewer posting the SMOrc emote could tell a streamer what to do, and the broadcaster fails in doing it, the viewer will spam the emote in chat. This generally doesn’t work due to moderators and chatbots.  

It’s original use as a Twitch emote was in relation to the game Hearthstone when people would go head-to-head against each other. 

The term SMOrc stands for “Space Marine Orc.”
