The new emoji that is the flawless response to unsolicited photos

There's a New Emoji & We're All Making the Same Joke

The Unicode Consortium, the governing body in charge of the official emoji, has announced a bunch of new pictographs for version 12.0.

The humble emoji, originally a set of basic symbols created to add visual flair to text-based messages, has become a way for people to express their identity. Instead we got... a lobster.

As for animals, the new emojis include a flamingo, a sloth, a skunk, an otter and an orangutan.

The new emoji typically start showing up on mobile phones in September/October - some platforms may release them earlier.

That's all really cool, but what we're most excited about is the incredible increase in representation among the icons.

Everyone, including myself, has been excited for the new batch of emojis hitting our smartphones very very soon.

Nationalists and many business leaders fear major disruption to trade and a hard border threatening peace process gains if no deal is struck and the backstop is not triggered.

While many might be shaking their head at the pinching hand emoji, the update includes the introduction of disabled-themed emojis that have been approved by disability rights campaigners.

A hand gesture that suggests someone has a "tiny penis" is among 230 new emojis released for 2019 - delighting social media users who say it really fills a gap in the market.

"The inclusion of an emoji.is a huge step toward normalizing periods and smashing the stigma which surrounds them", Russell added.

However, this latest raft of emojis will not arrive on your iPhone until later this year.

As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before. But for Plan International UK, it's been a "worthwhile challenge", as despite originating as a light-hearted campaign, the power of this universal language continue to increase. "They are trying to represent themselves in emojiland", she added. "We are part of the community". Up to now disability has been greatly under-represented'. "But I think a lot of us, we love our dogs and we love to show off our dogs".
