WordPress News: Emoji Coming to Jetpack

“Emoji” is a Japanese term meaning “picture character.” It’s a standard for showing smileys and other little symbols inside text. But unlike traditional smileys that are made up of a sequence of letters like :), every emoji has its own letter.

According to Sarah Gooding’s post, Twitter has “open sourced Twemoji,” meaning the emoji characters/symbols we all know and love to use on our phones are now accessible on twitter and can be seen all alike on mobile devices and desktops.Examples of emoji's used universally

In even more interesting news, Twitter also partnered up with Automattic to help WordPress do the same. Sarah also briefly explains how it may be easy to use emoji’s on a mobile device, but could prove slightly more challenging to desktop users. So to help she shared a small cheat sheet to use emoji on desktop.  She also says, “Mac users type Command + Control + Space while in a text editor. Windows… users can make use of the touch keyboard, which includes emoji support” (Sarah Gooding).

This is a great step for emoji users and it eraser a very annoying problem that’s been around for quite some time.
