The New York Times’s social questions column has provided a definitive answer to a burning social media question I know you’re desperate to understand: “When a White Person Can Use Brown Emoji Hands.” When I read that headline, a familiar sense of dread knotted itself into a Trump-shaped hairball inside me.
Although I tried to avoid it, there is a lot of Trump in shade court this week. At a certain, point, I just had to lean into it and at least try to enjoy witnessing this man’s humiliation, made all the more humiliating by the fact that he doesn’t realize the entire world is laughing at him. I guess that makes me feel…
It’s amazing what a nice meal and witnessing the most humiliating moment of Paul Ryan’s life can do for your spirit. Today is a good day and I’m ready for some shade justice.
Another round of emojis is expected in June to aid us in gradually phasing out unnecessary written and spoken language. Among the 69 potential useful selections are breastfeeding emojis, a Merman and Mermaid, a vomit emoji, and a genie, all of which seem pertinent to daily living.
Drake should be having a good week. On Saturday he released a new album and celebrated in London with his parents by his side. A ton of fucking people have listened to said album and Nicki Minaj likes him again. Unfortunately, Drake decided to undermine these blessings with a new tattoo that is somehow the pinnacle of…
Tyra Bank$ has launched a set of wonderful Tyra Banks and America’s Next Top Model related text stickers. They’re called TyTyMoji and you can use them now to harass your friends.
A reminder to anyone who wasn’t already feeling sick with fear at the prospect of our society’s swift and inevitable decline: there is going to be a movie about emojis, it is called—wait for it—Emojimovie: Express Yourself, and it is coming out next August. Maybe we’ll all be dead by then.
Rejoice in the Lord and be glad, for at last, all 66 books of the King James Version of the bible have been translated into emojis. Which philosopher was it who said that the dumbest ideas are also the most inevitable? I think maybe Kanye? Anyway:
The hot new trend among celebrities in and around Kim Kardashian’s orbit is developing custom emoji keyboards for smartphones. By “trend,” of course, I mean “three famous people have done this recently,” and those people are Kim Kardashian, Amber Rose, and Angela “Blac Chyna” Kardashian.
If you’re having a good day and would instead like to feel like climbing into a one-woman spaceship and hurling yourself far away from this stupid planet, gather round and read yet another confused Slate think piece where someone tries to understand what the black people are up to.

An emoji movie is in the works, just as Satan decreed. :-| ;-/ :-] 8-) :0)
People loved using the heart emoji (this thing: ♥♥♥♥♥♥) in 2014, so much that it's the most popular quote-unquote "word" of the year. This makes sense, because speech is cliché now and emojis are really the only way to express emotion. <3 <3
There's a very important battle happening in America and it's been a long and stressful one: the fight for a more racially diverse emoji selection. Every day we stare at our phones and wonder what could be, what should be. We should live in a world where poop and high-five emoji coexist with black ones, but we don't.
In today's Tweet Beat, if I used emojis, I would wholeheartedly agree with Julia Stiles, Alyssa Milano is breastfeeding and Neil deGrasse Tyson continues to be the coolest.
Apple admitted to MTV Act that their emojis aren't diverse enough. They're working with the Unicode Consortium – the non-profit corporation that standardizes software – to diversify them. That means emojis with people of all colors of the rainbow, which will definitely make your sex(ting) life much more accurate.
Because you haven't heard this song enough yet (and you won't until at least fall 2014, when it will be replaced on the radio with a billion amazing remixes of "***flawless"), here's an unofficial video for Beyoncé's "Drunk In Love" made entirely of emojis.
We use emoticons to punctuate tweets or text messages, but did you know that these icons can [maybe sorta] lend insight into where people fall along the autism spectrum?
