How do I turn text upside down?

I’ve been using Twitter for a few weeks and recently I got a message from my brother with upside text. I’ve been trying to figure out how to do it but have no idea; can you tell me how?


What you’ve seen in a clever trick. Upside down text is actually just a trick that uses special Unicode symbols that appear to be upside down letters, though they really aren’t turned upside down. By replacing the regular letters with the correct upside-down letters, it appears as though you’re writing upside down.

So, “Hello, my name is owen”, translates to: “u??o s? ???u ?? ‘oll??” (p.s. looks like WordPress doesn’t like Unicode much, but you get the idea). And there’s a pretty easy way to make this magic happen. I used a tool called Upside Down Text which does the translation for you. You’ll notice that it doesn’t handle capital letters, but that shouldn’t really be a problem to wow your brother. Wasn’t hard, was it, certainly easier than trying to undo a fire hose adapter!
