In an illuminating piece that analyzes the rate at which people use emojis with skin tone on Twitter, The Atlantic shows what we all kind of felt anyway: It’s pretty weird for a white person to use the white emoji (especially the closed fist one, we’d wager) and, predictably, fewer of them do it. But the piece also looks at how other races use the skin tones, what that means and how the emoji changed the way we think about race online. [The Atlantic]
