Emoji; they've conquered the world, featured in novels, and more recently they've allowed us to track Twitter's mood in real time.

Emoji, the system of emoticons and pictures ubiquitous in Japanese text messaging and mobile email, is to be standardized after three of the country's major carriers announced plans to unify their character sets. Currently when you send a message to someone on a different network their phone will transliterate your emoji and display a similar character in the carrier's own style, but this can cause confusion in certain cases — an example is Docomo's Taurus zodiac sign being displayed as a picture of a regular cow when sent to a KDDI phone.
