My friend Mikaela and I got into a debate the other day about the use of the this emoji 👆
What do you use it for? I thought it was sad or frustrated, turns out according to emojipedia, it’s a woman bowing.
We were also chatting about the different emoji personalities. People who use the same ones as a kind of signature 🌈 ❤️ 😘 , vs those who try seek out the more interesting ones. 🎍(🤷🏻♀️) What kind of emoji user are you? I wrote about it here for today’s Sunday Times ZA. https://www.timeslive.co.za/sunday-times/lifestyle/2020-05-10-what-your-most-frequently-used-emojis-say-about-your-life/ (If you can, please consider subscribing so we can help keep print journalism alive.)
