We might be able to quickly release an update to the plugin that fixes your issue. Before we can do that, could you let us know exactly the emojis characters you tried to use? Was it “:)” or “(smile)” or … what format?
We will try and reproduce the issue our end and find a solution to it for you.
Thanks for your quick response! That’s cool, thank you.
I tried copying and pasting them / adding them via my phone. Eg. ?. I did try the unicode too but Twitter doesn’t convert it. When using something like Buffer to schedule Tweets I just copy and paste from either the keyboard or a website like https://emojipedia.org/fire. Hope that helps.
As far as we can see this is something to do with WordPress database encoding (or encoding in general). That makes it quite difficult to track down. Plus emojis are browser-dependent meaning their rendering depends on which browser you are viewing them in. We’ve actually found some support threads on WordPress technical support forum in this matter, so we will use this to explain the behaviour and see what can be done about.
We checked it ourselves and we actually could (sometimes) save templates with fonts without issues.
