I was interested to read that the Museum of Modern Art announced that it had acquired the original set of 176 emoji for its permanent collection. See October 26, 2016 article in the New York Times entitled, “Look Who’s Smiley Now: MoMA Acquires Original Emoji” by Amanda Hess. Full article at
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/27/arts/design/look-whos-smiley-now-moma-acquires-original-emoji.html She says, “These glyphs, designed for pagers made by the Japanese mobile provider NTT DoCoMo and released in 1999, were the first pictographs to make their way into mobile communication. It would take another decade for emoji to explode into an American phenomenon, when Apple integrated its first emoji set for the iPhone in 2011.” I was pleasantly surprised to see in the seventh row and twelfth from the right a broken heart which resembles the broken heart we use as a logo on DivorceTV.
