Could the emoji selection include some of the common macOS and iPhone control icons?  That way when trying to describe buttons to click/tap on, we could include an emoji that looked like what we want the user to click/tap.

Case in point, I'm trying to tell someone to go to the iPhone -> Settings -> Wi-Fi -> network_name -> (i) (information) button, but the best I could come up with was to put an "i" inside parens.  It would be nice if there was an emoji that looked like the iPhone more information icon.

Similar controls, such as the Mac window red, orange, green buttons, especially the green button when it is is a full-screen icon or just a mostly full-screen icon when you hold the option key.

Hopefully, you get the idea.

I do realize you would have to figure out how to get them into a post as an image if there is no official emoji for that symbol, and you would have to get symbols that were not copyright encumbered.

But if you can do it, it would be a nice feature.

I'm not sure what flexibility we have in that regard, but maybe @adam-christianson knows?
