Keysmash is the act of tapping quickly and randomly on the keyboard of a computer or mobile device. It is usually a series of inconsistent keystrokes that do not form an understandable word or sentence (gibberish).
Users use Keysmash for a variety of reasons, including:
— Express intense or inexpressible emotions.
— Fill a silence in an online conversation.
— Add a touch of humor or excitement to a message.
— Create a visual reaction to a given situation.
— Establish a connection with other users who understand the implicit meaning of the Keysmash.
A good Keysmash is usually chaotic, but it can be effective if it manages to convey the emotion or feeling being expressed.
Here are some tips for creating a convincing Keysmash:
— Use both hands to vary the keyboard keys
— Do not hesitate to repeat the same letter combinations several times.
— Add a smiley or message at the end to indicate that the keystrokes were intentional.
A Keysmash is generally characterized by
— A sequence of random but closely spaced keystrokes on the keyboard.
— The absence of understandable words or sentences.
— An intention to express an emotion or reaction rather than communicate specific information.
— The desire to make people believe in an encrypted/coded/secret message when it is only random letters.
