No Emoji for irony

With Apple’s most recent iOS 8.3 release came hundreds of new emoticons for the emoji keyboard, including new multiracial characters and more diverse relationship couplings.

This is something many users have been asking after for a while now, as the original character set was not very representative of its diverse number users all over the world.

But if you send one of these new emojis to a friend who has not yet updated to the new iOS all they’re going to see is the original emoticon with an alien emoji thrown in next to it for good measure, just to make sure you know the picture their using is meant to stand out and be different. 

That’s one way to alienate people…
