The short answer—Unicode.
Hey, how'd you do that converts regular characters into Mathematical Alphanumeric Symbols. These characters were added to Unicode primarily for mathematicians to write equations.
𝖊, 𝕖, and 𝓮 could mean different things, so it's crucial the styles stay the same, no matter where they appear.
Unicode is the reason the letters I've typed on my keyboard are the same as the letters that your're reading on your screen now.
Computers only use binary to store and send data; so there is no lowercase k or uppercase W in your computer—just 1s and 0s.
Unicode is a practical agreement to use the same 1s and 0s to mean a lowercase k, an uppercase W, or even 👌.
Without everybody agreeing to these numbers the internet wouldn't be possible.
Unicode is a dictionary of all these numbers and to which characters they correspond. There are currently 137,439 characters.
Pretty much everywhere: social media posts, bios, and comments—including Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Instagram, and Quora—email, instant messsages, browser bookmarks, and lots more.
They even show up in Google results.
Some older devices and browsers don't support these characters. Instead they'll show up as empty squares or something similar.
If you're seeing a lot of squares on this page, then you may want to consider updating your software.
There's lots more on the way.
