EMOJI
[@OMG FACTS #1]

If you have ever had trouble remembering certain emoji codes, adding aliases can make it easier to find and use emojis in Slack. If you are into emojis, it might be useful to get a list of the most common emojis and the situations you will be using them in.

 

When you add an emoji to a message, the size of the emoji is adjusted to match the text. If the message does not contain text or only emojis, it will appear larger.

 

The Unicode consortium itself does not track how often different emojis are used. As emojis have become more important, the Unicode Consortium's selective process has also become an important tool for pooling international cultural and social representation.

 

By default, Slack displays Unicode emojis, but you can display them in plain text if you want. EmojiCompat tries its best to understand that the system can represent emojis, but not replace them.

 

The symbolic use of emojis is complicated by the fact that the committees that approve them and their emojis are becoming more specific.

The first emoji was made by Shigetaka Kurita in the year 1999, an engineer working at a Japanese mobile operator, NTT Docomo.
