UMaine mentioned in Mashable article on lobster emoji getting extra legs
The University of Maine was mentioned in the Mashable report, “The lobster emoji is getting an extra pair of legs.” In early February, Maine — famed for its lobsters — celebrated its victory in securing a lobster emoji, according to the article. However, when the official design was released, people pointed out that the lobster had the incorrect number of legs. According to information from the Lobster Institute at UMaine, American lobsters have four sets of “pereiopods,” or “walking legs” in addition to its claws. The design has been updated, and a four-legged lobster will be hitting phones later this year, Mashable reported. Geek.com also mentioned the Lobster Institute in a report on the emoji.
