King Announces Lobster Emoji Officially Coming Soon

There will be a lobster emoji available for use later this year, thanks to the crustacean’s best advocate, Sen. Angus King of Maine.

Unicode Consortium, which manages the standard set of characters used by most major websites and applications, unveiled its new emoji characters in the 2018 release of the standard character set.

The consortium annually updates standards and encourages proposals for additions, which is how King got the lobster on the list.
