Twemoji 2.5 Emoji Changelog

Twitter has today released an update to their Twemoji emoji set. This update adds no new emojis, but does change the appearance of a number of designs.

Versioned as Twemoji 2.5, this release brings a number of emojis closer to the designs used on other platforms.

A number of changes implemented today relate to the direction an emoji faces or the colors used in a design.

Changed

πŸ‘ Clapping Hands has more impact with extra, darker marks
