59 new emojis on Twitter
With the release of Twemoji 2.3 Twitter provides as the first major platform 59 new emojis from Unicode 10.0. Including skin tone modifiers and gendered versions there are 239 new emojis in total! Additionally many emojis were slightly modified.
According to Emojipedia the new Unicode 10 emojis will be supported by other vendors such as Apple later this year.
As with earlier emoji updates, emojigrams created prior to the latest update won't be modified on Emoji-Songs.com (the new "Zombie-Emoji" for instance would be a perfect match for the song "Zombie"). Future emojigrams that contain one or more Unicode 10 emojis will be marked with the abbreviation UC10 behind the date of entry.
