Social media managers didn’t stay quiet for long about the 117 emojis that the Unicode Consortium is planning to roll out this year.
Some brands rejoiced. Yorkshire Tea, for example, was over the moon that it finally got the #teamoji it so desired.
Oreo, meanwhile, couldn’t work out why it didn’t have its own emoji, yet "medical fondue" does.
