Re: Keyboard/ Emoji on KitKat?
OK, the reason you're seeing emojis differently is because of the keyboard you're using. For instance, if you use Whatsapp, it has its own set of emoji renders, but if you're typing on, say, Twitter, the emoji available is only what your keyboard has.

Oh, and the only way to switch keyboards, I'm afraid, is to use the Select Input option. Whenever you're typing something, a 'keyboard' icon should appear on your notification bar (if you're on JellyBean and up). Just tap that, select the keyboard you want, and you're done. Bear in mind that whatever you choose (and leave open after you're done typing) will be the keyboard that will be summoned the next time you're typing.
