Twitter commissioned Iconfactory to make a set of 872 emojis so tweets containing emoji characters would render on the web almost as well they do on iOS.
Twitter made them open source so you can use 🚀 🌉 ✨ on Blot. You can even copy and paste them 😍.
Thank you Twitter and your emoji project. Also, I made the descenders on links more pretty — look how they don’t overlap with the underline. The emoji extractor ignores some unicode characters, like these ones: © ® ™.
Also I made embedded tweets look a little better…
😍 Twitter users love tweeting emoji from their phones – now you can view these emoji on web! #emojiparty 🎉 😜 👯 🍻 🎈 🎤 🎮 🚀 🌉 ✨— Twitter Support (@TwitterSupport) April 2, 2014
