SquadW is a Twitch emote featuring streamer TrainwrecksTV with a face of confusion. As you would have guessed, it is mostly used to convey confusion or shock.
The stream where the image is from is still unknown to this day, but it was first uploaded to /r/trainwreckstv subreddit on September 23rd, 2018 by user CoolestTrihardInJg.
Considering that this emote had a recent creation, it has gained popularity exponentially. On October 8th the following month the content creator @edisaso1 posted the image of Trainwrecks with the caption “ANY BANNED USERS”.
On December 22nd, TrainwrecksTV himself posted the same image on Twitter with the caption “HEY ASSHOLE, I love you.”
Surprisingly, the emote wasn’t officially published to Twitch until May 22nd, 2019. Since it had already gained traction as a meme in both the Trainwrecks community and many others, it didn’t take long for it to be a commonly used emote across Twitch.
The streamer you are watching either says or does something absolutely stupid or controversial (usually related to double standards of men and women), it is guaranteed squadW will be spammed in chat.
