    I'm saddened you didn't post it in the article.

    It may be it but due to it being on a website doesn't cause a crash.

    through a message app such as whatsapp or something that gives a notification with the character... I think. I would load this page on my phone but ya know, I'd rather not risk it

    I’m loading it through my iPhone X and haven’t had an issue. That’s why I was curious. :D

    The only way i can think of testing it is using the notification system I built for work but that would crash all of my notifications. if you have a twitter account you could try making a new one and sending it to yourself with notifications on

    Again? What the heck are Apple doing in their Unicode implementation that keeps resulting in these bugs getting out into the wild?

    Ah, and a timely XKCD:
