But how do you discover which emojis exist?  It didn't occur to me that
💰 existed before I saw it, but now that I know it exists, I'll find a
way to work it into a conversation.  😪

I think exploration has to be a feature of the interface, as well as a
fast way to get to the ones you know you want.  So, sure, "recently
used" would be useful, but we need something more than textual search in
