Twitter is replacing native Android emojis with Twemoji. The novelty, which began to be released on Tuesday (22), should benefit users of old cell phones, who do not receive more updates of the operating system. In these cases, it was common to come across a rectangle in place of some emojis, especially the younger ones. With the move, this problem should no longer occur.
The feature is optional and can be enabled or disabled in the app settings. It is necessary to have a cell phone with Android N or lower to use Twemoji. In newer versions of the system, the microblog continues to use native Android or Samsung emojis.
