Open sourcing Twitter emoji for everyone

emojiAfter being the partner of Iconfactory to design emojis for its web client, Twitter has decided to open source the entire cutesy library.

Developers can grab the library from Github and start implementing the fancy little characters into their apps, sites and anywhere else you need a character of an ice cream cone next to sushi.

Automattic, the makers of a little CMS known as WordPress, is already implementing the emojis into the content management system.

While emojis are commonplace on mobile devices, today’s news means that you’ll start seeing them everywhere. Whether you like it or not.
