favourite text characters?

Post by vivi »

heya yesterwebbers do you have favourite text characters and/or characters you use so frequently you've memorized their Unicode codepoints? i do :p

i've got:
  • U+1F937 🤷 shrug
  • U+1F605 😅 smiling face with open mouth and cold sweat
  • U+1F44D 👍 thumbs up sign (there are some other useful hand gestures nearby, like U+1F44B)
  • U+1FAC2 🫂 people hugging
  • U+2764 U+FE0F ❤️ (that's two characters; the U+FE0F makes the heart display as an emoji and not as text)
  • some math ones like U+2248 ≈ U+221A √
edit: oop forgot to mention, The Unicode Blog is a good place to learn about the newest text characters

edit 2023-03-01: the new nod emoji U+1F642 U+200D U+2195 U+FE0F 🙂‍↕️ is the longest codepoint sequence i've memorized so far; nods are very useful

man i should do that, every time I have to insert one of those I end up googling em dash and copy pasting it in. Faster than the google docs insert thing, anyways.
