Another Tusky question!
Should we use Twemoji in Tusky? So emojis would look exactly the same as on the webversion and on all Android versions, with the drawback that it would increase the apk size significally.

@Tusky I'd vote for consistency with the web interface. It's weird that custom emoji will render as the instance owner defined them, but not the regular emoji.

Could you progressively backfill emoji in cache (from the instance itself? similar process as custom emoji?) over time if the user chooses instance emoji instead of system emoji?

Or a single bulk download post-install of twemoji, that warns the user first when the toggle the option?
