Free The Aubergine: Our Favourite Emoji Has Been Banned From Instagram
Our fave, ahem, suggestive emoji has been given the cold shoulder on Instagram.
What’s that? Our favourite, always-in-our-recently-used-list emoji has been banned on Instagram?
That’s right. Instagram issued an update last night which allows searchable emoji in hashtags. That means you could search to load up some nail inspo, or to search #DogsOfInstagram, but our friend the aubergine has been left out. The fear? That peeps will use the emoji to tag dick pics. Oh.
The good news for emoji addicts is that you can still use your fave, phallic emoji to caption your pics (#cheeky), you just can’t use it to search hashtags, which given its, eh, suggestive meaning is probably for the best really.
