The shrug emoji 🤷 is a popular image used to convey confusion or emphasize a question.

I first noticed ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ at the end of some tweet and wondered how to type it actually? upper line/slash/underline.. squares and then some strange symbols I doubt I have on my MAC.

After googling it - I found this brilliant article: How to Type the Shrug Emoji ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ in 2 Seconds Flat
