The global emoji mafia was pressured by an online petition started by Luke Holden of NY chain Luke's Lobster as well as by ME senator Angus King, who tweeted that it's "great news".

Emojipedia, the self-proclaimed emoji search engine that keeps the world up-to-date on all the latest emoji, made a nice 2-minute video showing off the more than 150 emoji that will be added to iPhones everywhere "in the second half of 2018".

On Wednesday, the Unicode Consortium announced the emoji would be added to its library, a move that King hailed as "great news". He even signed the tweet with a cow emoji and a crown emoji, seemingly representing his name "Angus King".

The Unicode Consortium launched in 1988 with a mission to create global standards for software and data. The finalized list included a softball, a pirate flag, a "woozy face", and, in a major win for Sen.

Angus King says a long-overdue lobster emoji is coming to smartphones, and it is cause for celebration. After all, the shrimp and crab already had emojis, as did other sea creatures like the squid, octopus, dolphin, shark and whale. These images are just samples and vendors for mobile phones, PCs, and web platforms will typically use images that fit their overall emoji designs.
