"When was the last time you went a day without using any emoji? How about a
week? In March 2021, I went through a fun self-imposed experiment: no emoji for
2 weeks. Not on social media, not in private messages, not even as Slack or
Discord reactions. No emoticon either: the goal was to communicate without
illustrations, only with words. I did a semi-rigorous (a.k.a. half-assed) diary
study, taking notes on my feelings and behaviour."
