Emojis in Law: Making a Mess of Messaging

Published: 04 Feb 2019 Average Rating: unrated Print
 

Author: Edwina Oliver

Emojis feel like they've been around forever because they substitute for some of the nuance lost in written text when tone and physical communication are missing. Evolving from the prehistoric smiley emoticon : - ) and 'whatever' kaomoji ¯_(ツ)_/¯ they're fast becoming a standalone language.

Unfortunately emojis have some serious flaws. They're a combination of imperfect emotional representations and slang that vary by region, group and individual. This makes them impossible to objectively interpret. These challenges are exacerbated by cross-platform inconsistencies in emoji presentation. So what does this mean for emojis in contract and law?
