Correctly typesetting a tilde

I can show ~(tilde) in normal text, using text as follows,

\begin{quote}
\verb|~|
\end{quote}

But the problem is when I try to put this in footnote{}. Error will be thrown, how should I do this?

You can use \~{} for a tilde. Example:

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}
Hi here\footnote{My character is ``\~{}'' and \texttt{I can also typset
it in this font: ``\~{}''}.}.
\end{document}

The group {} is quite important after the \~, otherwise LaTeX will think it's an accent to put on the next character.

So TeX puts the accent on nothing, right? –  Hendrik Vogt Mar 25 '11 at 5:40

How about \textasciitilde ? It works for me.

Just use the \textasciitilde command.

\footnote{foo \~{} bar} works for me. If you want it in \verb style, but a \texttt around.
