there are far too many emojis. theres like twenty five emojis which have the :O face and they're all called like "astonished" "nonplussed" etc. you used to just type :O and people would roughly know what you meant. but now theyre gonna see an emoji going :O and hover over it to find out which :O face its actually meant to be, and then ask you "why are you yawning, the emoji says yawning, i thought you'd be shocked"
@jk THIS so much. Emojis drive me insane, there's so many of them but often they *all* miss the mark and fail to capture how I'm feeling
@jk and the one-eyebrow-pullup emoji 🤨 is far from the 'weirded-out' expression I intend when I type: o_O
@jk i feel everybody should have realised the wider problem when sending a yellow heart to someone with an android phone caused this to happen
@envgen @jk ... I thought this was a shitpost but no..
@jk This is basically why I use oldfashioned text emoticons like :-) and :-( rather than emoji. If I try to replace :-) with a smiling emoji ... there are so many and I'm never sure which one quite matches my meaning.
