Twitter started supporting Emoji through its Japanese site twtr.jp.
Apparently they use Google's internal code. For example when I enter
docomo #140 'Happy face' from my docomo phone and look at the tweet
from the Mac, the code is U+FE330 which is docomo #140 in Google's
internal code. If I post U+FE330 from my Mac I can see it correctly as
docomo #140 from my docomo phone. I believe twtr.jp, by recognizing
your cellphone's carrier, converts between your carrier's emoji code
and their internal (or public?) code.
As twitter started accumulating user data in Google's internal code
and all tweets are visible globally, it might obtain a de-facto
position soon I am afraid, unless ISO finishes the standardization and
someone major start supporting the standard quickly.
