What is Glitch Text?

Most likely you may have found this page after seeing someone post glitchy text in the comments of on Instagram, Facebook comment, or other social media page or messenger. Glitch text has been around for a very long time. Even before Youtube, Twitter and Discord. Distort text uses combining diacritical marks stacked on top of one another to create a creepy glitching effect.

How does Glitched Text work?

Well, the story starts with Unicode. Unicode is an industry standard that manages all of the characters that you view on most of your electronic devices. Unicode uses a set of symbols that look like the original Latin alphabet. By adding a diacritic, we can specify that the letter is pronounced in a different way than usual.

The characters that Unicode has are very basic looking and diacritics can be added to those characters in order to make it look a certain way or appear as a certain letter in a particular language. We can take advantage of this hot mess to create glitch text.

How to make glitchy text

The glitch font generator is a fun and unique way to generate distorted and corrupted text that is creepy and weird and makes it look like the letters are falling apart.

If you copy and paste it into form which only allows a certain subset of unicode characters, then the strange glitchy marks may be removed, or possibly all of your text.
