Emojis have become an important part of the way we communicate. And every single day, more emojis are being introduced, generally much to the delight of users. With the newest update of iOS, there are now over 70 more emojis that iPhone users can now use to express all sorts of ideas without having to know how to spell.

Of course, for all but the most brand loyal among us, we are also aware that there are often differences between the specific look of emojis between different platforms. Google, Apple, Microsoft, and more all have their own set of emojis that generally follow the same guidelines, but there’s room for artistic interpretation.

Sometimes these differences are mild and generally harmless. And sometimes, especially when emojis take on meanings “beyond” what they initially were supposed to mean, there can be some confusion in the subtext.

For one violinist, the differences in the violin emoji were just offensive to his craft. So he ranked them.

Turns out, variation in every single emoji matters. What’s your favorite violin emoji? Tell us on Twitter. But, considering its ranking, probably avoid actually using Twitter’s violin emoji.
