this character is diacritical one. It is used for characters
like ñ (alt-n and then n) or ã (alt-n and then a). When you
exchange your text with users on other platforms, problems
might occur.

There is also "the small tilde": alt-shift 8.

I just tried it: Both, ~/ (the diacritical character) and ˜/
(the small tilde) allow to navigate to the home directory.
