I wonder if one day, following on from your comment, that someone might dig up some of these, and also call them an ancient written language needing interpretation.

Fascinating, sin't it?

Emojis are nothing more than tiny images (drawn, not photos) that fit
in line with text, taking up the equivalent of 1 to 2 (maybe 3)
character places.

They originally had, as their intent, expressing emotions much as
emoticons did and do. However, the range has expanded to include so
many that this can no longer be said to be the case.

Many are used as coded references to other things. The infamous
eggplant emoji being the most "commonly known" one. Look it up.
