Angus King celebrates announcement of new lobster emoji
08 February 2018, 09:37 | Ross Houston
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.
