Where Do Emojis Come From?

A very short history of the group that controls emoji

Have you ever wondered who chooses the world’s emojis? And how they got that power? We at Hardbound did. So we wrote a new story that explains it all.

You can read it right here: https://www.hardbound.co/read/emoji/1

It only takes 4 minutes, and so far people seem to like it:

Update: We also got picked up by TheNextWeb!

Sorry we have to send you somewhere else in order to read it. In the future, we’d love to be able to embed Hardbound stories on Medium!

Enjoy! 🐵
