This emoji can be used to communicate that you agree with something, that you’re voting in favor of something. It can also be used for high fives. It does not have many alternative meaning, and looks similar to the front of the hand emoji.
Keywords: backhand, raised, raised back of hand
Introduced: June, 2016 in Unicode version 9.0.0 (Emoji version 3.0)
This emoji hand is pinching its thumb and index finger together as if to indicate just a little of something. “Just a little” is the phrase that comes to mind here, whether you are just a little mad or want just a little more.
I have a suggestion! The person tipping hand emoji is a gesture meaning that someone is about to say something or have a conversation. It’s a positive conversation, so don’t worry, you aren't in trouble.
