A customizable, simple-to-use, jQuery powered emoji picker for text fields that support Apple Emoji, Android Emoji and Twitter Emoji.

How to use it:

1. Load the jQuery Emoji Picker's main JavaScript and CSS files in the webpage.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/jquery.emojipicker.js"></script>

2. Load an Emoji icon set of your your choice as follows:
