However, some users were unimpressed with the new emoji.

And a lot of people are associating it with penis size.... "No no no it's not amusing". Instead we got... a lobster.

The latest update continues a trend toward greater emoji diversity, which began in earnest a few years ago when a range of skin tones was introduced.

Phil Talbot, head of communications at disability equality charity Scope, said: 'Love them or hate them - emojis have become part of our everyday digital lives.

An online vote was conducted to allow supporters to choose between five possible designs for the new emoji, with a picture of stained underpants selected and submitted to Unicode.

The update also adds more than a dozen emoji that represent members of the Deaf and Blind communities and people with disabilities.

Some are thrilled, meanwhile others think Emoji were playing it too safe with the representation, questioning whether it really is a "period" emoji or a simple "blood drop".

The blood droplet is the result of a campaign led by girls' rights group Plan International UK, which hoped the new symbol would help tackle period stigma. But this is the first time that a solitary drop of blood is getting its own emoji.

"For years we've obsessively silenced and euphemised periods". "For an organisation like Unicode to recognise that menstruation should be represented in this new global language is a huge step towards breaking down a global culture of shame around periods".

Some other new emojis we can look forward to include a fresh assortment of animals, including a sloth, a skunk, an orangutan, and a flamingo.
