Arkunir or @arkunir is a French Twitter user, Twitch streamer and online personality primarily known for ratioing public figures and high-profile individuals on Twitter, such as Elon Musk, Emmanuel Macron and Twitter's official company account.

Online History

Arkunir originally joined Twitter in August 2013.[1] Posting content and jokes about a variety of topics, he gained notoriety on the platform. In particular, he posted jokes about soccer and gaming. On Twitch, Arkunir usually streamed himself playing Minecraft and various sports games.[9] Arkunir didn't achieve notable virality until the early 2020s when he ratioed various high-profile figures on his Twitter account.

Emmanuel Macron Ratio

On July 17th, 2021, Arkunir promised to circumnavigate the globe using Google Maps Street View feature, raising money for a charity devoted to animals. He agreed to do this on the condition that French President Emmanuel Macron reply to a tweet of his (seen below, left).[2] Macron replied to the tweet on July 19th with "Banco," which is a colloquial term meaning "okay, do it." (seen below, right). Arkunir in turn replied to Macron's response with a "thank you Mr. President, but ratio now" and succeeded, earning over 76,000 likes to President Macron's nearly 37,000.[3]

The Google Street View stream (highlights of which are seen below) lasted 126 hours (rather than the estimated 25-30 hours) raised 47,500 euros and was covered by the French press.[4] Prior to his Macron ratio, @arkunir counted 160,000 followers, garnering him a notable rise in his following after the viral phenomenon.[9]

Following the success of the stream, Emmanuel Macron then ratioed @Arkunir in a September 21st, 2021, reply to a tweet announcing the completion of Arkunir's journey.[5]

Twitter Official Account Ratio

On January 9th, 2022, Arkunir launched a ratio against Twitter itself on the social media company's account (seen below).[6] The app's official account tweeted about the practice of ratioing, to which Arkunir then replied with a simple period, accomplishing a ratio.

Twitter @Twitter Jan 10 may your Tweets prosper and you never be ratioed 3,715 Arkunir @Arkunir Replying to @Twitter 11.8K 5:14 PM Jan 10, 2022 · Twitter for iPhone 10.1K Retweets 1,170 Quote Tweets 181.9K Likes 122.6K [→ 企 : :

Twitter then replied to Arkunir with an exclamation mark.[7] Subsequently, the official account followed Arkunir on the platform, making him (for a brief period of time) the singular account followed by Twitter's official profile. At the time of this ratio, Arkunir had around 280,000 followers.[8]

Elon Musk Ratios

Following Elon Musk's purchase of Twitter in the autumn of 2022, Arkunir extended his ratio campaign to the platform's new owner. Posting a reply on November 7th, 2022, to a joke by Musk (seen below) Arkunir accomplished a ratio in roughly 40 minutes, earning 72,800 likes to Musk's 72,700 likes.[10] The Arkunir reply that accomplished the ratio was then deleted. According to Arkunir, a purportedly offended Elon Musk (see below, right) was to blame, though this is unconfirmed.[11]

Arkunir then ratioed Musk a second time on November 8th, 2022 (seen below, left), this time earning 83,600 likes to Musk's 83,400 likes in just under 30 minutes.[12] To accomplish this second viral ratio, Arkunir called for help from other posters online, writing, "We CAN do it and we ARE GOING to do it. EVERYBODY GET TO IT!" (seen below, right).[14]

>Twitter "Celebrity" that does Ratios.

That is, for me, the lowest of the Low, there is no thought to anything, and it exemplifies the worst the Site has to offer; even if that allows for the people high above to get their dose of humble pie, it just transfers the ego to the Ratio User.
