THE VERGE - Feb 27 - Tinder is launching a campaign called #RepresentLove, in collaboration with Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian and Emojination founder Jennifer 8. Lee, with the goal of petitioning Unicode to introduce interracial couple emoji. The Change.org petition reads "Why is Tinder involved? We believe all love deserves emoji representation." Emoji have been customizable with various skin tone options since 2015, and Microsoft introduced 52K new emoji with the release of Windows 10 in 2016, to account for all possible combinations in a family unit. But diverse emoji family units are still hard to make across platforms; Facebook added 125 new family emoji options last summer, none of them interracial. Tinder's proposal will be fairly simple: three new skin tones for both versions of the preexisting couple emoji. Accounting for all combinations, that would mean the addition of 21 new emoji.
