It’s a debate that has been swirling amongst the tech community all week – which cheeseburger emoji has the accurate layout?
Now, Snapchat has waded into the debate with its own dancing burger character.
Snapchat’s offering features two patties separated by cheese and tomato – although not everyone seems convinced that this is an accurate layout.
Snapchat has added a dancing burger as one of its augmented reality lenses.
Users can ‘place’ the virtual burger on different surfaces through the lens, changing its size and position as they like.
The Snapchat burger’s layout is (bottom to top) bun, patty, cheese, tomato, patty, lettuce, bun.
Anthony tweeted: ‘Ok the orders of ingredients on Snapchat’s burger should be illegal.’
The burger emoji debate was sparked last week when Thomas Baekdal, an author from Denmark tweeted a screenshot of Apple’s and Google’s respective cheeseburger emoji showing the different cheese placement.
He wrote: ‘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.’
The viral tweet caught the attention of CEO Sundar Pichai, who wrote in response on Sunday: ‘Will drop everything else we are doing and address on Monday:) if folks can agree on the correct way to do this!’
Since then, thousands of people have joined the debate on Twitter.
Google is the only tech company that offers a cheeseburger emoji with cheese below the patty.
Apple, Facebook, Samsung and others all place the cheese on top.
The general consensus seems to be that Microsoft has got its emoji right, with the order of (bottom to top) bun, patty, cheese, tomato, lettuce, bun.
Rich Woods tweeted: ‘The burger emoji battle is fun, but let’s take a moment to point out that Microsoft is the only one that gets it completely right.’
Jeff added: ‘Congratulations Microsoft for winning the Cheeseburger Emoji battle! From bottom to top: Bun, burger, cheese, tomato, lettuce, bun.’
