#4. Twemoji
Twitter wants to provide everyone with emojis, which has led to Twemoji: a library that offers standard Unicode emoji support across all platforms. “Since we’ve gotten many requests to use our emoji in various projects, as of today we’re open-sourcing our emoji. We hope that the permissive licensing of this project will enable the spread of emoji adoption across platforms,” the company wrote on its blog.
