It’s true! You can now type a 🌴. Most browsers, phones, and computers now support emoji, those little smileys and other fun symbols. If yours is up to date that was a cute little image of a palm tree. (Actually palms are not trees, but that is what the symbol is called.) It was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 (details here). One way to get a 🌴is to copy and paste this one.
If it works on enough platforms, you will start to see lots of little 🌴’s on this site. Of course if you want to see palms at home and you are now in a cold place, you know what to do:
Call Me…™ 🌴 🌴 🌴
In case you are not seeing the palms in the text above, here are some real ones!
