250 New Emoji Coming Soon

Today, the Unicode Consortium has released Unicode version 7.0, adding 2,834 new characters. Unicode is the industry standard that regulates encoding and representation of text across computers, with support for various languages, writing systems, and special symbols.

Such is the popularity of emoji, Emojipedia, which lists the 250 new characters, is currently down.

Already confirmed for the new set is a “Middle Finger Emoji”. I’m hoping for a “Sad Pile of Poo”.
