    I don't think people use the poop emoji in rapid succession like they do some of these others XD

    Dear Apple,

    Your claim you aren't able to decrypt the content of Messages between two parties has been exposed as false by Emoji-gate. Please provide us with the web API you use to spy on people's emoji habits.

    Kindest Regards,
    Director, NSA

    Think about the emoji that people use in long, repeating strings. You never really use more than one or two thumbs up at a time.

    The crying emoji is how I would feel about analyzing any data about emoji.

    It's a unitless chart, and completely anonymous. I wouldn't worry.

    Apple has long been about anonymity and encryption. They'll collect data, but it is quite abstracted.

    Wow, I must be weird, I have never used it. Looks like a insane person or someone who is faking happiness when inside they are not.

    Emojis are a passing fad while will be supplemented by something else in the near future as today’s millennial get old and are replaced by the next generation of narcissists.

    Not surprising. That's the emoji that comes up when you type "LOL". Just about everything else requires a character other than letters.

    Texts between Apple users sent with Messages is encrypted. Otherwise, these data could be culled from texts sent to others without Apple devices.

    There's a big difference between knowing which buttons are pushed most often and knowing how each of those buttons are connected together before they're sent.

    I find it similar to when i now notice i somewhat use lol for everything that makes no sense “hi lol”, “they are out of apples at publix lol” my god. My parents, all they send is emjoi’s in response to my messages or pictures. Disturbing.
