It didn't take long for Black Mirror to compare the new feature to "The Waldo Moment" episode in Season Two.

The TV show tweeted out this GIF of the unveiling, which Brooker was swift to retweet, with an addition of their own - Waldo.

Look closely at the second line, spot the blue faced bear? That's the one that caused a political uprising, when a failed comedian used similar technology to the kind depicted by Apple to become a populist figurehead.

Better use those Animojis wisely then.
