Could your emojis be considered “death threats in the form of an image”?

Breaking up is hard to do, and in our ever-connected digital age, getting over your ex is far from easy. Just when you think you’re moving on, they post a new photo online showing them with someone else, or Facebook keeps putting their stories at the top of your newsfeed.

Social media makes relationships hard, especially if you don’t give your partner–or ex–a little space, and now one man found out the hard way just how serious a toll technology can have.

Do you think an emoji could land you in jail? After a bad breakup, one man’s text message had him in police custody in no time.
