The origin of U+1F4A9

An alert reader recently pointed out that there's a Unicode character that might be particularly suitable for use in describing some of the less-than-accurate data and questionable research that plagues the information security industry. This is the U+1F4A9 code point.

I don't know anyone who's involved in developing Unicode standards so I can't say for sure whether or not that was why U+1F4A9 was included in Unicode 6.0.0, but it's the best reason that I've heard so far.
