King Announces Lobster Emoji Officially Coming Soon

Yes, the new emoji list for 2018 has been published which will make redheads and more than 150 other emojis available for you to have fun with. A formal request was submitted to the Unicode Consortium by King himself in September 2017, The Hill reported.

King - Maine's mustached, independent senator, as well as outspoken lobster advocate and owner of the best Instagram account in Congress, who frequently sports his various lobster ties in the Capitol - celebrated the decision Wednesday.

The Unicode Consortium, the nonprofit governing body responsible for determining which emojis get added each year, announced in a blog post Wednesday that the lobster will be released this year.

All of Maine Rejoices After Lobster Emoji Is Made Official

"Great news for ME - we're getting a lobster emoji!" wrote the 73-year-old senator, cleverly signing off his tweet with cow and crown emoji (Get it?). The Unicode Emoji Subcommittee determines which characters will become part of the official emoji lexicon, creating a uniform code that can be used across platforms.

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

Hair is a big deal in the new options with options for red hair, curly hair white hair and even one for baldness! However, the emoji that you'll actually see and use depends on what software you're using.
