This column about emoji typos first appeared here in The Sunday Times on 10th May 2020.
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.
