Twitter removes gun emoji in new emoji update


Twitter has announced a number of changes in its Twemoji 2.5 update.

Following the lead of several companies including Apple, WhatsApp, and Samsung. The squirt gun will take the place of the pistol.

In 2016, Apple successfully pushed to have a rifle emoji removed from the standardized collection of icons.

However, shortly after, Apple then made the decision to change the pistol emoji to a bright green water pistol.

In an email to TechCrunch, a representative from Twitter said the change was simply made for “consistency” to match how the emoji has changed across other platforms.
