Comment (by r-a-y):

 > So... I thought we needed to migrate the tables to utf8mb4. What does
 that not do if we need to do this for emojis?

 See comment:3.

 According to the Docblock, `wp_encode_emoji()` only supports Unicode-7
 emojis.  The good news is there are only 37 Unicode-8 emojis:

 However, I did a test of a few Unicode-8 emojis and `wp_encode_emoji()`
 worked for these as well.

 I assume the DB upgrade would support all other emojis from Unicode-8.
