Hint: "tilde" is not in the answer.

Hint: It's a rebus-type puzzle, so think about objects that a tilde kinda looks like. Say it outloud, along with some indication that it's a tiny version … answer is written as one word. 😎

A bit like ". -" = pointless ?

Yes, a bit. The period definitely looks like a point.

Did we decide on the convention that hyphens in a text rebus denote specific letters? (Hmm, maybe that only applies to hyphens adjacent to known letters.)

Btw, according to Wikipedia:
~ = similar to
11134= approximately
