From Texas Standard:

Emojis — small graphics of items, symbols, and faces used in texting and web messaging — have become a major form of communication. You can hold entire conversations with them and even, if you have a lot of time on your hands,  transcribe entire books with them.

But a lot of Texas icons — armadillos, Shiner beer, Whataburger — are regrettably missing from your smartphone keyboard. No more! A Texas company will make your ‘Texmoji’ dreams come true.

Q Manning, CEO of Rocksauce Studiosjoins the Texas Standard to talk about which Texas symbols made the cut.
