How do I type a tilde in regular text?

If you type \, it will give you a tilde as an accent over the letter. If you want it as its own character (e.g., in a http address), use


You can also use: \~{ }, though I'm forgetting for the moment when this is useful. I think it has to do with times when you can't use the verbatim command.

Keywords: Latex, tilde, http address, twiddle
