This week, we created a set of puro San Antonio emoji characters that we all need in our lives. Unfortunately, as much as we need a Big Red and barbacoa emoji, you can't actually use them on your phone.
That's because Unicode Consortium, the body that decides the standard for computer character encoding, decides which emoji are made available to the texting masses. Dozens of new emoji were added to our phone keyboards earlier this year, including the oft-requested taco emoji, which we were a bit disappointed by. The body is already announcing candidates for the next batch of new emoji, and there are plenty that we'd start to like using right now. Seven more candidates were added to the list this week, according to Wired.
