Microsoft is bravely giving you the middle finger

Zachary M. Seward, writing for Quartz:

The latest update to Windows 10, the forthcoming operating system for its phones and personal computers, includes support for the middle finger emoji, according to Emojipedia. That makes Microsoft the first big tech company to allow the profane emoji onto its platform.

The Unicode Consortium, which dictates the official language of emoji, added “reversed hand with middle finger extended” in the middle of last year. But it’s up to companies like Apple, Google, Twitter, and others to actually allow their users to type and view each emoji.

I like it. Still not enough to make me switch, though.
