What is cursive text?

Cursive โ€” also known as script, longhand, or joined-up writing โ€” is the result of handwriting without lifting your pen off the paper. It's generally considered faster to write in cursive โ€” and fancier too, if you're doing it properly.

How does this work?

This tool works by converting regular letters into mathematical alphanumberic Characters โ€” these characters are supposed to be used for algebra โ€” but you can use them to make your instagram bio look fancy.

You can find a longer explanation, as well as lots more 'fonts' using Beautiful Dingbats' Fancy Font Generator.

But these letters don't really join up?

So, I guess they're not really cursive, just silly pretend cursive.

Where can I use this lettering?

These fake letters work on most devices, and browsers, and are supported by major social media sites.

Note โ€” social media is dangerous and can seriously harm your democracy, mental health, and understanding reality.


It's common for people on instagram to use these in their stories, bios, posts and instant messages.


These letters work great in twitter bios and in the angry tweets you send people who disagree with you about something trivial.
But they don't work as twitter handles.


These letters work great on Facebook. Try introducing them to your conspiracy theorist uncle? Tell him they'll stop the government from monitoring his tweets.


Reddit loves irony, and nothing says ironic like the faux cursive. They work in posts, comments and more.

Everywhere Else

TikTok, Discord, Twitch, forums, browser tabs, folders, you can even use them to name your wifi. Enjoy, and let me know if you find anywhere else where they work.
