I recently did an experiment where I didn't use any emoji for 2 weeks. It was super interesting, so in the end I wrote a whole article about:
• How emojis are decided upon and designed
• What are their limitations and potential pitfalls
• What we can do about those pitfalls: how to best use them
• And obviously I also share how my experiment went and what I learnt from it!
