LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

July 17th is World Emoji Day, according to the date on the calender emoji.

The textable emoticons were first created in Japan by Shigetaka Kurita in 1999. Since then they have largely developed to include a diverse array of icons.

But, more updates are coming as 38 new emojis are expected to be added to Unicode 9.0 as early as June 2016.
