Snapchat Joins The Great Burger Debate, Launches An AR Dancing Burger
By Izza Sofia, 03 Nov 2017
Tech companies have been embroiled in controversy this week regarding the burger emoji.
Now, Snapchat has joined the fray by unveiling a cheeseburger AR filter, and it has the same attitude as its famous sibling, the dancing hotdog.
For those who have not been following, author Thomas Baekdal pointed out the differences on Twitter, comparing emojis from Apple and Google, which showed a different order of stacked ingredients on the cheeseburger emoji.
Twitter users battled it out, with one user noting that Microsoft seemed to be the only one to get it right. It is fair to say that the entire conversation got way out of hand. Even Google’s CEO tweeted that he would drop everything to resolve the situation if people could land on an agreed order for burger toppings.
While Snapchat’s representation is a double cheeseburger, the order of ingredients differs from Google and Apple, and other tech companies. Opinions on the precise order differ, but most agree that the cheese should reside either on top of the patty or between two patties.
I think we need to have a discussion about how Google's burger emoji is placing the cheese underneath the burger, while Apple puts it on top pic.twitter.com/PgXmCkY3Yc— Thomas Baekdal (@baekdal) October 28, 2017
