"Great news for ME - we're getting a lobster emoji!" Sen.

On Wednesday, the Unicode Consortium announced the emoji would be added to its library, a move that King hailed as "great news".

Maine's state crustacean will soon be one of the "emoji" pictograms available for electronic messaging. Without a doubt, this is one of the biggest victory of the senator's political career and proof that - no matter how disgusting things seem in Washington, D.C. - government is still capable of getting things accomplished.

King signed his tweet with an emoji for a cow followed by another for a crown.

Kenyan opposition politician charged over mock inauguration
The government took three private television channels off the air on Tuesday as they began to cover of the opposition ceremony. His supporters in the opposition stronghold of Kisumu city in western Kenya clashed with police, who fired tear gas at them.

"A new lobster emoji would fill a necessary and unique void in the current Emoji List, and, should it be added, appears destined for significant usage by lobster fans around the world", King wrote in a September 2017 letter to the Unicode Consortium.

Angus King says a long-overdue lobster emoji is coming to smartphones, and it is cause for celebration.

For the first time, Emoji 11.0 includes options for hair color and style on different emoji. These images are just samples and vendors for mobile phones, PCs, and web platforms will typically use images that fit their overall emoji designs. As part of its #LikeAGirl campaign, feminine hygiene product brand Always released a video in 2016 showing the underrepresentation of women with respect to emojis.
