What if? Emoji are the modern day Hieroglyph?

I saw the announcement of the New Emogi for 2019 and had a thought. What if this is the modern day equivalent to Egyptian Hieroglyphs, and we are headed down the path of no longer using text writing, but only pictures?

I won’t go further into this now, but submit the thought, and and two videos. Comments welcome. hehe<–example

First the context ( video ) for Egyptian;

Then the “New” 230 additions;

I guess this idea could be applied to many other ancient writing systems that seem to be “pictorial”.
