The Taco Emoji Needs To Happen
Unicode Consortium, a non-profit that regulates the coding standards for written computer text that includes emojis, announced on Friday, November 14 that it has accepted 37 new emoji characters as candidates for Unicode 8.0, scheduled for mid-2015. These are candidates—not yet finalized—so some emojis may not appear in the release.
The taco emoji is a potential candidate for the release, but we need your help convincing them THE TACO EMOJI NEEDS TO HAPPEN.
Why do pizza and hamburger lovers get an emoji but taco lovers don’t? Here’s a better question: why do we need four different types of mailboxes? Or 25 different types of clocks? Or a VCR tape and floppy disk emoji? No one even uses those things anymore.
Regardless, we know we're not alone. Taco Bell fans everywhere have been asking for a taco emoji for years and now we finally have the chance to help get the people what they want. America wants a taco emoji. America needs a taco emoji. Help us. Sign this petition. Let’s make the taco emoji official.
