Emoji ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Emoji was created by Shigetaka Kurita in Japan, 1999.

Originally meaning pictograph, the word emoji comes from Japanese e (絵, “picture”) + moji (文字, “character”). The resemblance to the English words emotion and emoticon is purely coincidental. For more information, please check Wikipedia.

Emoji has a big journal until now. People like it because it is one of the ways of communication. Today, people prefer to texting instead of calling or face2face communication. I think Emoji makes it convenient and universal.
