After several request and collaboration, Twitter Emojis are now open source for everyone. The social media giant said in their blog: “Earlier this year, we collaborated with our friends at @Iconfactory on a set of 872 beautiful Emojis so Tweets containing Emoji characters would look as sharp on the web as they do in mobile apps. Now we’re pleased to announce that these Emojis are available as an open source library to the developer community at large.”
Emojis originated from Japan, which are ideograms or smileys used in Japanese electronic messages and webpages. Line is a growing popular messaging app for smartphones notorious for it’s integration and use of Emojis.
Now that Twitter Emojis are available to developers, I anticipate amazing things will be created.
