Get hi-res twemoji SVGs by URL

Yo, just a quick one. If you want to get high quality renders of twitter emoji (twemoji), you can get the SVGs by codepoint with a URL like this: https://twitter.github.io/twemoji/v/13.1.0/svg/1f439.svg

Hamster twemoji

To help you find codepoints, Emojipedia has a page, Every Emoji by Codepoint.

  • You need to lowercase any letters in the name.
  • If an emoji is a combination of multiple points, separate them with a dash.

E.g. For Woman Technologist (no skin colour), convert U+1F469, U+200D, U+1F4BB to 1f469-200d-1f4bb.svg

Also, check out the directory listing on GitHub: https://github.com/twitter/twemoji/tree/gh-pages/v/13.1.0/svg

Don’t hotlink to these images, there are CDNs for that, as explained on the project readme. This is just a handy way to download an SVG so you can render it into an icon or use it in Inkscape, etc.

Lastly, technically, these are CC-BY 4.0, so attribution is required πŸ™„πŸ™„

Have fun 🐦
