ME senator claws his way to lobster emoji victory

No less than 157 emojis are coming to Android and iOS in 2018

The global emoji mafia was pressured by an online petition started by Luke Holden of NY chain Luke's Lobster as well as by ME senator Angus King, who tweeted that it's "great news".

Angus King says a long-overdue lobster emoji is coming to smartphones, and it is cause for celebration.

The senator wrote to Unicode requesting a lobster emoji in September 2017 and cited the importance of the animal on Maine's culture and economy.

Per Emojipedia, there are 157 new emojis in the list, bringing the total number of approved emojis to 2,823.

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.

For the first time, Emoji 11.0 includes options for hair color and style on different emoji.

Since he lobbied for the emoji, the senator might have suggested it be dubbed "Lobster a la King", but critics would have likely called that shellfish. In the video, girls were asked what emojis they'd like to see representing women, to which they suggested female wrestlers, soccer players and drummers, among others.
