In order to gain a following online, influencers almost always have to share a bit of their personality. When it comes to revealing details about themselves and their lives, they can be very selective. Popular gamer and YouTuber Ranboo has kept a low profile with his followers so far. The influencer, on the other hand, only recently came out as gay on Twitter.
What does “/srs” mean on Twitter?
After simply tweeting “/srs,” Ranboo received a ton of attention on Twitter. While some users were ecstatic about his coming out, others were perplexed by the phrase. To understand why he does this, we need to look back at some of his earlier posts, in which he appears to be teasing his fans about his sexuality.
He wrote “men” in a post from April 1 and “with the bf” over a photo of himself sitting with a statue that he shared recently. However, it is difficult to tell whether Ranboo’s posts are serious or not because he often posts them as jokes, making it even more difficult. For some time, rumors circulated that he had a soft spot for men, but his tweet “/srs” finally put an end to any doubts.
As it turns out, “/srs” simply means “serious” or “seriously,” and that was how many people were aware that he was homosexual. Ranboo followed up the simple post with a few longer messages in which he thanked his followers for their support.
“Yo just wanted to say thanks for all the support with everything and tonight lol have been wanting to do that for a while tonight just lined up well,” he wrote.
“And for those confused basically I guess I am technically unlabeled as the way I have kinda always gone around life just being attracted to whoever I am attracted to it just so happens that most of them line up with a ‘certain type’ you could say lol am OK with the gay label,” he added.
While there is a wide range of sexual preferences, Ranboo’s tweet suggests that he has been most attracted to men throughout his entire life.

/srs is also used on TikTok.
Ranboo’s tweet introduced many people to the term /srs, but it has since become a common abbreviation of serious on the internet. It’s popular on TikTok and has spread to other social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter thanks to the internet’s universal language.
In most cases, /srs isn’t worth the effort. A longstanding rumor about Ranboo led him to make the phrase so significant. Ranboo’s fans are ecstatic that he’s out of prison. His decision to go public on his own timetable was understandable, and that’s how it should be. Now that it’s out there, it’s no longer a secret.
