Emojis

LGBT emojis are dividing emotions internationally

They say the language of love is universal, and nothing showcases this better from a technological perspective than a good romantic emoji.

Transcending dialects, regions, devices and platforms these little icons of emotion have been embraced the world over.

More recently, the digital images have also come to represent a more inclusive view of love, with emojis now featuring same-sex couples and families alongside the existing love-related icons.

Taco Bell is making great use of the taco emoji it lobbied for

In June, the Unicode Consortium added a taco emoji to the Unicode 8.0 standard, and last month, it became available to iOS users when Apple released iOS 9.1.

The debut of the taco emoji was a notable event not just for Mexican food lovers, but for Taco Bell, one of the largest Mexican food chains in the United States.
