Love it: New emoji “pinching hand”

As you know, I tend to let other sites focus on breaking news, but I couldn’t help but laugh when I read this news story about Unicode releasing 230 new symbols. Officially this is referred to as the “pinching hand“, but Twitter had a field day with suggestions for what this might actually be used to represent.tiny penis emojiI can only imagine how gay apps like Grindr, Scruff and Growlr might react with this new visual vocabulary. But I can sum it up my feelings with this emoji.
