Columnists 'live-emoji' a morning at TODAY through emoticons  

Even the art in the Orange Room is turning digital Friday morning.

Zoe Mendelson and Amy Goldwasser from Co.Design's "Emoji Major" column will be "live-emojiing" their interpretation of Friday's show, offering their trademark long-form emoji columns of selected segments from the show.

Emoji is the Japanese term for ideograms, or emoticons, and was popularized when added to the iPhone's keyboard. Since then, they have become commonplace in text messages and social posts, offering users the opportunity to express themselves using more than just words.

Check in right here all morning long to see Mendelson and Goldwasser interpret today's show using only emojis.
