What is an oomfie on Twitter?

A Twitter follower

On Twitter (or X), an oomfie is a term deriving from the OOMF acronym people use to refer to a follower. For example, you may message one of your followers, "You've been with me since day 1, and you are my favorite oomfie!"

People use oomfie playfully and lovingly to followers they care about. Because of its friendly tone, some use it to refer to friends that may not even be on social media (as if it came from an acronym that stands for "one of my friends"). Additionally, people may also use oomfie on other social platforms, such as TikTok and Instagram.

Origin of oomfie

While the "oomfie" slang term comes from the OOMF acronym, its origins are unclear. Its usage dates back to the early 2010s, but no evidence points to who used it first.
