All you emoji lovers can now sleep sound knowing that your smiley faces and little piles of poop will be able to be seen by those browsing their Twitter timelines on the web.
Before today, mobile Twitter users who included emojis in their tweets were faced with hollow boxes when those tweets were viewed on the web. Now, if you include an emoji in a tweet from your smartphone, web-based Twitter users will see a version of that emoji. It’s retroactive too-all your past emojis will now show up.
You’re still going to have issues when you attempt to embed tweets with emojis, however.
Tweetdeck support for emojis seems to be inconsistent, with some users reporting that they can see them fine and other pissed that they still can’t see the colorful icons.
Emoji away, Twitter users.
