What is an emoji sticker?

Regular inline emojis are strongly regulated by the Unicode Consortium, a group that helps to make sure that no matter what remote part of the world you’re in, when you type an A you always get an A, an @ is always an @ and a 💩 is always a 💩. Therefore it is nearly impossible to add new emojis to the character space on a whim (especially for something as silly as what we're doing). So we’re using the pic‑emoji format, often called stickers, which are not characters typed inline, but pasted images.
