Emoji Character Encoding Data Hints: [1] This emoji first appeared in OSX / iOS after the iOS 5 update.[2] The code generated for this emoji was changed slightly in iOS 7 / OSX 10.9 (a variation selector was added) advising the OS to display character emoji style instead of black and white text when available. We don't mind Apple, thank you! We just love our emojis! [Sources 11438-emoji-var.pdf 13.7 Variation Selectors (unicode.org)]

Emoji Brief

Emoji would not be as easily translated and deciphered (it would be more difficult to communicate with it) if it wasn't for the Unicode Consortium who's goal is to freely standardize characters for all languages using the the Unicode Transformation Format (UTF). For more information about UTF-8/UTF-16 and character encoding standards on the web, view the UTF-8 Encoding information page on FileFormat.info or the Introduction to Unicode on Linux.com.

Also, there are many character conversion tools online. Check out this free UTF-8 Tool to analyze and generate Code Points from these characters!
