72 new emoji officially rolled out as of Unicode 9’s release, and today Twitter is finally getting support for its own set of these new glyphs.

That means support for new favorites like avocado, selfie, and face palm, but also the ever-terrifying clown emoji. Support for emoji with skin color modifiers will also be available, including pregnant woman and male dancer.

Twitter also adapted a few minor details, such as adding a hat and sunglasses to the levitating business man emoji and a shadow under the bread emoji to give it dimension.

Since most computers can’t support manually typing in emoji just yet, your best bet is to copy and paste from resources like Emojipedia or Emoji Keyboard and tweet all the shrugs you can give. Especially at the clown. Ugh, whyyy.
