Making text show up in the strikethrough format on Discord is quite simple. First, type two tilde (~) symbols before your text. Then, type your word, sentence, or paragraph and end it with two more tilde symbols after the statement. The text should look like this: ~~Example text here.~~

The textbox will show your text with a line through it before you hit send, meaning that you don't need to send the message first to check if the formatting worked. If you don't see the strikethrough as you type your message like in the image above, you need to fix the formatting.
