From twitter blog:

“Since we’ve gotten many requests to use our emoji in various projects, as of today we’re open sourcing our emoji. We hope that the permissive licensing of this project will enable the spread of emoji adoption across platforms. To get the #twemojiparty started, we partnered with our friends at Automattic so the WordPress crowd can start using them right away.”
