Help SAVE Discord Emoijis/Twemoji!
I have been eagerly anticipating Unicode 15 emojis being added to Discord - and I know Discord uses Twemoji's and personally love the look. While researching to try and see when they may be added, I found this thread from around November explaining many members who worked on Twemoji were laid off/quit, though the pack was ready to go live (I'd highly recommend reading this whole thread for context):
Due to this and multiple factors at Twitter, it very much seems as though Twemoji (even if we get Unicode 15) will likely be discontinued completely. The ex-Twitter employee made a note saying "Also, if Discord would like to hire either of us to work on (Tw)emoji, I don't think we'd decline." I have been using Discord for many years now and can't imagine it having a different emoji pack - is there any potential of Discord being able to work with Twitter to help revive Twemoji - or potentially buy it off of them, see if they're able to rehire some of the team, and keep it going?
I would love to see twemoji revived!2
I didn't know about this, hope this gets the support it needs1
If they don't do this, we riot. Or something like rioting, but politer and more constructive.1
