ME senator claws his way to lobster emoji victory

King Announces Lobster Emoji Officially Coming Soon

Maine's state crustacean will soon be one of the "emoji" pictograms available for electronic messaging.

The new emojis are scheduled to be released in June, according to a company news release. Unicode is a nonprofit organization that promotes consistency in computer coding.

King fittingly signed off the tweet with his name in emoji form: a cow for Angus and a crown for King.

With the release of 157 new emoji's the mango will appear as a part of Unicode's new update. If you've been feeling a bit perplexed as to how you can accurately describe that feeling when the blood drains from your face, the Consortium included a "cold face", and if the opposite is true, a "hot face". Angus King of ME has finally netted his state a lobster emoji.

At the end of the season, based on that support, a proposal was made to the global Unicode Consortium (the worldwide authority on emojis) to introduce the mango emoji in their next official update.

Lobster lovers like King had felt a pinch of resentment that their favorite crustacean was without representation. These images are just samples and vendors for mobile phones, PCs, and web platforms will typically use images that fit their overall emoji designs.
