Emoji designs have to be vetted and approved by the Unicode Technical Committee, which sounds like some shadowy cabal. But while it has strict criteria to decide what gets passed, it can sometimes be swayed by popular campaigns. And some TikTokkers are having a go, proposing some not-entirely serious emoji designs that we never realised we needed. 

But while these new emojis are proposed with tongue firmly lodged in cheek, some of them could actually be useful. So pay attention Unicode, some of these could improve the mobile user experience (see our pick of the best UI design tools to find resources for your own work).
