U.S. Sen. Angus King of Maine is particularly proud of the lobster emoji, which he pushed for.

"Thanks to @unicode for recognizing the impact of this critical crustacean, in Maine and across the country," King tweeted, signing his name with emoji of a cow and a crown.

According to the Unicode Consortium, the new emoji will be released in August or September.
