What Is World Emoji Day?
World Emoji Day began in 2014 when users of Apple devices noticed that Apple’s calendar apps showed July 17 as the date on the calendar on its icon. A tweet appeared in July 2014 announcing the day as the official World Emoji Day. It has grown ever since, with more celebrations around the world happening each year.
Last year, to celebrate #World Emoji Day, Apple released up to 70 new emojis for users of their devices. They include more expressive faces such as a cold face and a pleading face; animals such peacocks, lobsters, and kangaroos; and food such as mango and cupcakes.
