We demand a typewriter emoji

by | Oct 10, 2015 | Uncategorized | 7 comments

The emoji character set includes all sorts of old-fashioned objects: a floppy disk, a pager, an old TV, a videotape…
… But no typewriter!

When emojistas want to suggest a typewriter, they have to make do with a fax machine or a Rolodex. This is a travesty. 
Where do we complain? How do we start a petition? And who’s going to design the typewriter emoji when it becomes official?
(The petition starts with my next post.)

    For typewriter's sake, they even have a fountain pen! Clearly, those behind the creation of these Emoji's are not aware of the strength of The Revolution

    Bill Owens found some answers for me. Let's type some letters to:
