Tracking emoji usage on Twitter

Emojitracker

The people I follow on Twitter almost never use emojis, but every now and then I peek into trending topics or tweets near me, and it's a completely different experience. People use emojis. A lot. The emojitracker, a small project by the Rocket Workshop, does exactly what the name says. It keeps track of the emojis people use on Twitter in real-time.
