re: Emoji Encoding, Unicode, and Internationalization with Naomi Meyer VIEW POST


Thank you for this amazing talk !

Given that different platform can have their variation of each emoji, are they doing a good job of keeping them similar? or are they straying further and further apart? Is anybody keeping them in check?


Thanks Mac, this is a great question! The gun/pistol emoji is a perfect example of this controversial issue, check out the many different articles that discuss this! The tl dr is there's not really anyone right now keeping it in check. Overall most emoji platform/vendors are pretty consistent but there have definitely been notable controversial differences.
