To be precise, this is the COMBINING TILDE not the character TILDE (U+007E).

Just for the record:

“Ô is used in Portuguese, Kashubian;

“Ñ” is used in Galician, Spanish, Mirandese, Catalan (only for Spanish loan words), even English (for Spanish loan words), Breton (in Peurunvan spelling), Basque; “Õ” is used in Estonian, Livonian (extinct since 2013); “Ȭ” is used in Livonian; “Ũ” is used in Mirandese.

I have only considered European official, and regional, languages.
