For the record, I asked the editors of UTR/UTS 51. They believe that CSS should offer 5 states governing characters with the `Emoji` property (and emoji sequences they are in):

* _emoji-override_: force emoji presentation, i.e. override U+FE0E
* _emoji_: emoji presentation, unless in a text presentation sequence
* _default_: adhere to `Emoji_Presentation` and variation selectors
* _text_: text presentation, unless in an emoji presentation sequence
* _text-override_: force text presentation​, i.e. override U+FE0F

I believe Twitter's website (and many others) enforces an `emoji-override` behavior by replacing characters with images. The default behavior in mobile OSs seems to be more like `emoji`.
