Who doesn’t love a good emjoi? So, I am pretty much obsessed with emojis. That’s my favorite thing about the iPhone. Sometimes, words just aren’t enough. Sometimes, you need that perfectly fitting emoji.
On Monday, the Unicode Consortium, a nonprofit that regulates the coding standards for written computer text that includes, yes, emoji, announced that it has added 2,834 new characters to its widely adopted standard. Among them are approximately 250 emoji. Can you believe this is happening? I can’t. I am over joyed and thrilled with excitement. July will bring the 250 new emojis to the Emojipedia as part of the Unicode 7.0 software update from Apple, Google and Microsoft.
