This year's Emoji update finally represents those with red hair

08 February 2018

After a new upcoming lobster emoji for smartphones and other devices was announced, Maine Senator Angus King took to Twitter to show his happiness about this new way of expressing pride in his state, local TV channel WMTW reported Wednesday. There are sample images for the new emoji floating around the internet, including those from Emojipedia and from The Unicode Consortium itself.

There will be a lobster emoji available for use later this year, thanks to the crustacean's best advocate, Sen.

Among the other emojis in the newest batch - scheduled for release in Jun 2018 - are a mosquito, a pirate flag, a woman superhero and a softball.

Lobster lovers like King had felt a pinch of resentment that their favorite crustacean was without representation. More than 5,400 people added their signatures.
