emoji – I love them ?
For a lot of people emoji are the most useless things across the whole internet. Every time there are announcements of new emoji a lot of people shake heads and write “… don’t they have better things to do… childish… only for kids…” and so on. I think different. I love to see (new) emoji. ❤
Originally meaning pictograph, the word comes from Japanese e (絵, “picture”) + moji (文字, “character”). Read more about it in this Wikipedia article about emoji.

Why I do love emoji
I really don’t know if this is true but according to a TIMES article “People Who Use Emojis Have More Sex“. ? There is something interesting in this article. It says
…emoji users cared more about finding partners who consider communication a desirable trait.
Communication as a desirable trait. I like that.
