Smile! Hundreds Of New Emojis To Be Released
They say a picture paints a thousand words - now there are going to be 250 more to choose from when you send a text.
A major release of new Emojis - the symbols and images you can include in texts and emails - is due in July.
The characters are part of an update of Unicode, the standards that regulate how text appears across different platforms.
The 250 new additions will include a hand with a middle finger raised, a sure-fire way to bring some text conversations to a close.
But the release does not just include insults - there are a series of weird and wonderful Emojis to choose from too.
They include a squirrel, a spider web, fax icon, oil drum, ballot box, rolled-up newspaper, a chipmunk, bullhorn and a weightlifter.
The last major Unicode update - which is agreed between Microsoft, Apple and Google - was in 2010.
Other than the middle-finger Emoji, images of the new symbols have not yet been released.
However, a text description of each one can be found on the emoji website.
Emojis are found on Apple and Android products, and Windows 8 PCs and tablets, such as the Surface, among others.
They are also available on applications such as Facebook and Whatsapp.
