How does '~' operator works?

Please note that my question is very generic. 

There is a one issue that holds this value in description. The value is "". When I search using below I get no results:

text ~

text ~

text ~ ""

text ~ ""

When I add "www" front of the search term so example I am getting result back.

JIRA does not handle substring searches out of the box with the ~ operator.

Another relevant issue:

If substring search is a requirement, you'll unfortunately need to look into a plugin to extend JQL functionality.

Josh in this case we have an issue that hold value as "" and when you search as text ~ "", it returns the result.
