Flip the Bird With the New Middle Finger Emoji

By Gerald Lynch on at

Can't be bothered to call a pal to tell them how pissed off you are? Or even text them with proper words and letters? Then you need the new Middle Finger Emoji, the best in impersonal digital chiding.

The new icon will become available in July through an update to unicode, the standard that regulates how text is displayed across platforms. A further 249 Emoji will be introduced, including spiderwebs, and a skull and crossbones. Perfect for organising your Spider-Man / Pirates of the Caribbean mash-up party. [Time]
