allow any emoji as a reaction, not just thumbs up
Slack has this: get.slack.help/hc/en-us/articles/206870317-..
Adding any emoji as a reaction remains under review.
I am marking this as partially done to let you know a new reactions bar with Like, Heart, Laugh, Surprised, Sad, and Angry has begun rolling out to all users.

I agree and like this feature of Slack, but just found the emoji which a person could use to reply to a particular comment.
We rely on the emoji reactions in Slack. :shipit: squirrel, Followed by the checkmark when code has been deployed. We communicate with these one-click symbols. Please add them so we can switch away from Slack.

I already had one on my team head back over to Slack in the middle of a thread because this feature wasn't available. It must be added, and soon!

I can't even find the Thumbs Down emoji, next to the Thumbs Up one of my most used emojis on other platforms.
take the best pieces of slack and make them better please, don't reinvent what we already love.
I can't live without this.

Would love to be able to do this. Definitely one of the things that I miss from Slack.
