In Japanese, it is actually the - character and not ~ when typing correctly. When you want to elongated the vowel, you use the - button. i.e. Computer is Konpyu-ta-. However, when people are trying to be cute, they sometimes use ~ to make some exclamations longer. Not used for foreign words like computer.
