I just discovered it only happens only if the node is added later to the DOM.

  • Version changed from 5.6 to 4.2.2

Relevant code:

The only place the wp-exclude-emoji class is checked is within the MutationObserver, which is only called for DOM insertions. It appears that this is probably intentional, based on the original implementation via #32197

parse( document.body ) causes Twemoji to process every textnode, and the callback presented provides no context as to what element it's operating on - so we can't even return false there (to cause it to generate no img replacement).

The reference below to twemoji.parentNode gave me hope, but this appears not to be set anywhere I can find (either while debugging, or looking at the twemoji source).

I suspect this is going to require an upstream bug report to allow some form of context to be made available to the callback, so that we can return a falsey value here to abort the replacement.

Setting version to 4.2.2, as it appears this has always been how this functionality works.
