    Of all the things that should be in WordPress (better post type support, improving the comments system which has not seen any attention, two-factor auth built in, a better json api..) but yay i can now post a chicken face if i so please lol.

    Can you hear that? No? It’s the sound of users clamoring for Emoji support in WP!

    Most useless “feature” ever.

    This is strange. This looks very much like plugin territory to me, and serving them via CDN seems even weirder.

    (Joining the group of grumpy old men .. is there an emoji for that?), I don’t see the reason why this should be in the core when at the same time other “core” features are relegated to plugins

    Think of all the people who’ve vowed not to use WordPress until it has Emoji character support built into its core. If this doesn’t drive WordPress to 50% market share, surly nothing will.

    Wasn’t there a general rule that if something wasn’t going to be used by 80% of WordPress users, it shouldn’t be in core?

    I too think adding Emoji support is a bit out there, but when listening to a recent interview of Matt Mullenweg where he mentions that Emoji is supported on nearly every mobile device coupled with the fact that the world has more mobile devices than people, then it seems counter intuitive for WordPress not to support it.

    I find it annoying that something like this could get into core, but functionality for a standardized method of adding a custom site logo was built into JetPack instead of core – it should be the other way around.

    No this is a good thing. Peeps reading my blog on their iPhones don’t always speak emoticon. :)

    Another totally useless bling-bling “feature”. Please avoid nonsense like that. It’s plugin territory, stupid!

    This is a paraphrase:
    Jimi Hendrix and his manager went to a gig; Jimi’s manager was not at all impressed with the talent, so he asked Jimi why he had come to this particular venue; Jimi responded, ‘you never know, you might find a gem in all that muck’.

    I find this feature weird. But like @Jeff, after listening to Matt’s interview of Matt Mullenweg.. then yeah the addition of this sounds logical. More and more people are visiting sites & reading blogs on their mobile, so commenting with emojis (:poop:) isn’t so far fetched.

    People see Emoji support as bad (i don’t totally agree)… you can try actual WordPress emoticons, i´m sure that you feel like in year 2000. Emoticons are already part of the core, why not update them?

    I’m currently looking for information on what are exactly the supported emojis on WordPress (and still havent found some clues). But as people are using mobile devices more and more, emojis will be a nice element to bring attention to a post in the SERPs. Something like Expedia have started doing:
