ResidentSleeper Is The Standard Emote For Twitch Boredom


ResidentSleeper became a prominent emote to express boredom among Twitch chat during streams over the following decade. The emote was briefly removed in 2016 due to a Twitch cleanse of low-poly emotes, but was ultimately resubmitted. Notably, streamer AdmiralBulldog banned the use of the emote after his chat used it to express disappointment in his PUBG play in 2017.

On April 12th, 2018, a definition for the emote was added to Urban Dictionary by user John Wick Poggers (shown below), receiving over 220 likes in roughly two years and becoming the top definition for the term.
