The Emoji Issue
Though wed never advocate completely scrapping a traditional alphabet in place of Unicodes emoji keyboard, we can admit the shorthand smileys and the miscellaneous genres they come in help capture situations you cant quite put into words.
But while a quick thumbs up, goofy ghost, or wink-y face can convey plenty of universally understood messages (eggplant emoji, anyone?), be it through text or Snapchat, its hard to communicate the intricacies and nuances of life in SA with the latest Unicode update. It needs a little Saytown flair how else are you going to express Fiesta is but a few weeks away, or that the neighborhood pack of strays chased you on your way home? Weve designed a new set of emojis to help describe San Antonio life with more ease. Dont see something integral to the 210 experience? Feel free to let us know what we missed.
