Angus King celebrates announcement of new lobster emoji

No less than 157 emojis are coming to Android and iOS in 2018

Angus King says a long-overdue lobster emoji is coming to smartphones, and it is cause for celebration.

"Not only is the lobster of substantial cultural relevance", he argued, but according to online data, it also garners public interest that is at least equal to that of the crab, which already has its own emoji. He thanked the emoji-creating company "for recognizing the impact of this critical crustacean, in ME and across the country".

The senator wrote to Unicode requesting a lobster emoji in September 2017 and cited the importance of the animal on Maine's culture and economy.

The Unicode Consortium has announced the finalization of the Emoji 11.0 standard which adds 157 new emojis.

King fittingly signed off the tweet with his name in emoji form: a cow for Angus and a crown for King. That brings the total number of approved emoji - the little one-character-sized pictures often used in text messages and social media posts - to 2,832, the site reported. There are sample images for the new emoji floating around the internet, including those from Emojipedia and from The Unicode Consortium itself. Emoji have also been added for activities like softball, knitting, and lacrosse.
