Am I Wrong to Judge People for Talking to Me in Emoji?

I think this article is relevant to contemporary young people, because young people easily create or discover new symbols and make them popular in online communication. In this article, Wordsmith raises a problem that is concerned that symbols (emoji, bitmoji, likes, reactions) cannot express the words that all the communicators want to express, so Wordsmith also judges those who use symbols to communicate. The authors of the article say that while it may be difficult to express complex ideas with emojis, there is nothing stopping these Unicode symbols from evolving into a full-fledged language.
