Perhaps cheeseburger lovers, who have strong feelings about the layout of the ingredients in it, will be interested in Google’s latest discussion.
The controversy began on Twitter, of course, and the first to tweet about it was user Thomas Baekdal.
In his tweet he compared the ways Apple and Google distribute the ingredients in the cheeseburger. And within Google’s emoticon, the cheese is in the wrong place.
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

Gourmets, who are also emoticon experts, say that Apple cleverly positions the ingredients by placing the salad under the burger.
This prevents the bottom bun from dipping and thus complicating consumption. While Google puts the cheese in that place and makes a great gourmet catastrophe.
This news would not have been news if Google CEO Sundar Pichai did not announce that the employees “will leave all the other things aside and will deal with this problem urgently”.
But on a condition that there are satisfied number of users to vote on the necessity of placing the cheese in the right place.
Will drop everything else we are doing and address on Monday:) if folks can agree on the correct way to do this! https://t.co/dXRuZnX1Ag

According to Emojipedia, the cheeseburger as an emoticon is approved as part of Unicode 6.0 as early as 2010. The Emoji 1.0 family is added in 2015.
And on that occasion, companies that design their own emoticons have full freedom in the placement of ingredients.
