King Announces Lobster Emoji Officially Coming Soon

King - Maine's mustached, independent senator, as well as outspoken lobster advocate and owner of the best Instagram account in Congress, who frequently sports his various lobster ties in the Capitol - celebrated the decision Wednesday.

"Neither the existing crab nor shrimp emoji can be effectively used to represent a lobster, which has a distinctively different profile", wrote King, who was also among the nine New England senators who co-sponsored a successful resolution a year ago designating September 25 as "National Lobster Day".

U.S. Sen. Angus King announced on Twitter Wednesday afternoon that social media users around the world will now be able to shorthand their love of Maine's signature seafood.

The global emoji mafia was pressured by an online petition started by Luke Holden of NY chain Luke's Lobster as well as by ME senator Angus King, who tweeted that it's "great news".

King fittingly signed off the tweet with his name in emoji form: a cow for Angus and a crown for King.
