The Unicode Technical Committee, AKA the people who come up with all of the emojis that we know and love, has released some potential new candidates for all your insatiable emoji needs. There are 72 new emojis that have made the cut (how long the ‘shortlist’ was for this round, we’re not entirely sure, but would be frightened to know), so now Apple, Microsoft, Facebook and co. can pick them up, letting the emojis join mainstream conversations everywhere! We’re still waiting on a few of our patriotic suggestions to get the greenlight but there are definitely a few in this pending bunch that will work their way into our URL vernacular pretty soon (plus even more that we’ll use just for the fun of it). Check out the list below for 10 of the hits and misses of the latest release.
