    I've noticed that android doesn't really come with native unicode support. This came up on a tweet from one of the music artists I follow tweeting this:
    https://twitter.com/virtual_self/status/923260155151704066
    (you can try it on a phone and on the computer, and you'll see what I mean).

    Not super high priority, but it'd be really nice to have in the future.

    Maybe it's a Twitter 'feature'? Chrome is not good at Unicode too...
    Or, at least, bad designed fonts... Idk

    That's true, it could be twitter. I'm not really sure if it's actually a unicode issue, but that seemed to be the consensus in the replies on that tweet.

    Yep, not enough clues to conclude so far :)
    Emoji and special Unicode characters are the weirdest example : every OS implements them as it likes them.
    Webview has glitches too, but not always... strange.
    But, as I said, too many things/features to check before conclusion...

    Seems like this either requires more research before coming up with a "fix" or someone needs to get everyone to agree on a standard. I'd say this is out of oneplus' hands for now.
