Twitter emojis take long time to load

hi, I wonder why is it so that twitter style emojis take to long to load when you want to use them?

first you click on emoji icon, then the window appears with emojis being like glitched for the lack of a better word, and in 2-3 seconds normal emojis appear. cant they be cached to something, makes using emoji not that smooth of a process? anyone else suffering from that?

If you use "Twitter" style emojis, those are image files that have to download to your browser. While they will most likely cache in your browser once they've downloaded (we don't host them and don't control the caching), it's still extra overhead.

Native emojis are built right into whatever device you are navigating with as part of the standard font set, so there's nothing to download and they will generally display instantly or near instantly.

Aha, thanks for that. I noticed this too, I enabled them after seeing the text about the Twitter emoji working for all users. Makes sense if they are images! I have some members stuck on Windows 7 who complain about seeing black and white emojis, so I thought this would be a good workaround for them after EmojiOne was removed. I suppose lazyload helps but I think I'll switch back to Native style.

Whether you agree or not - native emojis are lacking, their ONLY + is that they are native, loaded in an instant and that's it.

Twitter ones are looking better for me at least. I'm on Windows 10 and what is this pile of different looking emojis? Why are there borders around some images? This is probably the main reason why I do not switch to native emojis. Can't these borders be removed somehow?

Let's remember now oldschool emojis made of images no larger than 30x30 and I remember that there was NEVER a hiccup or lag when they needed to be loaded in the page. Twitter emojis now that's another story.. What are my questions/suggestions?

Can some Twitter emoji categories be removed? there's just too much of them anyways. perhaps that would speed up the loading.

But most importantly can't a way be found to somehow cache those twitter images to users' browser temp files so they would not be loaded as new images every time? How come this can't be done?
