Replace Twitter Like Hearts with Any Emoji of Your Choice

All hell broke loose recently when Twitter replaced the yellow star icons for declaring tweets as your favorites with the red colored hearts to like the tweets.

Personally, nobody I know has expressed felicitous thoughts about the red like hearts, but everyone seems to be astounded at the changes.
