July 17 is marked as the International Emoji Day. Or is that July 15?

The reason why July 17 was picked by emoji enthusiasts is because the Apple emoji artwork for calendar displays July 17.

Apple chose the date to display on the emoji because it was on this day in 2002 that the company announced the iCal for Mac.

However, if you view the same emoji on Twitter Web, the date moves behind a couple of days to July 15. Why July 15 on Twitter? It was on July 16, 2006 that the microblogging service was first launched to the public.

The World Emoji Day website refers to July 15 as 'Fake World Emoji Day' and insists that July 17 is the real deal.

Other calendar emojis don't highlight one date and there is also another variation of the calendar emoji - the 'tear-off calendar'.
