An Entomologist Rates Ant Emojis

[Apple] Beautiful big almond eye, realistic and full of expression as she gazes gently at you. Elbowed antennae and delicately segmented legs and body. Gorgeous pearlescent sheen like she is glowing. This ant moisturizes. This ant is round and huggable. This ant is a star. 11/10.

[Samsung] This ant has an unexplained, double-jointed thorax, and no evidence of a waist. Her four-footed pose suggests that she a centaur rather than an ant. Centaur ants would be cool. I’m not sure what was intended here. 2/10.

[Mozilla] This is a termite. -10/10

Jeremy Burge:

Emoji 11.0 is the emoji release that follows Emoji 5.0. This new emoji list was confirmed on 2018-02-07 and the specification was released on 2018-06-05.

Note: There are no Emoji versions 6.0-10.0 as a decision was made in 2017 to align emoji version numbers with their respective Unicode versions starting with version 11.0.
