    twemojis package is not in TL (but is in MiKTeX) despite its LPPL
    license. Is it intentional?

Yes. That package is 12mb and contains ~3300 tiny files, pdfs for each
of many glyphs.  I have nothing against the package's purpose, I just
didn't want to eat up all that space.  Maybe putting it in tlcontrib
would be more viable. (I didn't think of that until now.) -k
